The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) released an updated version of its technical manual “Good Application Makes a Good Roof Better – A Simplified Guide.” 

The manual outlines installation methods for laminated asphalt shingles, and is now available electronically as well as in print. The updated version includes the latest industry best practices to instruct roofing professionals and DIY enthusiasts on installation methods that help to maximize shingle life and weather protection. 

Readers will be able to purchase and access the eBook instantly from any e-reader device including any smart phone, tablet, Kindle, or Nook. This manual is a general installation guide, but each manufacturer’s roofing product has its own requirements and specifications. So, it is essential that the product manufacturer’s application instructions always be followed, ARMA says.

ARMA offers numerous design and installation guides for both residential and commercial asphalt roofing systems. For more information or to purchase ARMA publications, visit
