Manila Community Center
Residential Roofing Wins Bids With Atlas Signature Select® WarrantyPaul Casseri, Product Manager
Atlas Roofing Case Study: Manila Community Center, Manila, AR
Building Type: Municipal Activity Building
Roofing Contractor: Residential Roofing Inc., Blytheville, AR
For decades, the Manila Community Center has been a hub of activity in Manila, AR, a rural town adjacent to the Big Lake National Wildlife Refuge. It has hosted wedding receptions, civic events and even professional wrestling. However, the center's deteriorating roof was beginning to make people nervous about using it for future events.
"Manila wanted a long-lasting roof for its investment and Pinnacle® Pristine shingles featuring Scotchgard Protector™ were the right choice."
Residential Roofing Inc. has been providing commercial and residential roofing services for more than 30 years in northeast Arkansas. The company has installed many Atlas Signature Select® Roofing Systems that come standard with an extended Premium Protection Period when a roof is installed with Atlas products specifically chosen to work together.
“That program was just what the doctor ordered for the worn-out and tired-looking roof on the Manila Community Center,” said Max Curtis, president of Residential Roofing. “The previous roof had been poorly installed and was quite stained by algae.”
A Look That Will Last
The roof for the Manila Community Center certainly needed a new look. But above the need for improved aesthetics, it had to be durable.
“The new roof had to retain its color for many years with minimal required maintenance,” said Curtis. “Pinnacle Pristine from Atlas is just the shingle to do that.”
The Pinnacle Pristine architectural shingles enhance a building’s overall visual appeal much better than standard 3-tab shingles. The Residential Roofing crew installed more than 145 squares of Pinnacle Pristine shingles on the Manila Community Center.
The shingles feature Scotchgard™ Protector to help resist the ugly black streaks caused by algae. Unprotected shingles are defenseless against the invasion of algae, and roofs in more than 80 percent of the U.S. are prone to it.
With this protection, the new Atlas shingles on the Manila Community Center will look good for years to come.
“Manila wanted a long-lasting roof for its investment and Pinnacle Pristine shingles featuring Scotchgard Protector were the right choice," said Curtis. “These shingles offer the best in protection and appearance at a competitive price.”
Winning The Bid
An impressive look and algae resistance might have been enough to win the bid. However, Max Curtis believes it was the extended Premium Protection Period of the Signature Select Roofing System that sealed the deal.
The roof that Residential Roofing installed at the Manila Community Center included all the components required for an Atlas Signature Select roof system: Pinnacle Pristine shingles, Pro-Cut Hip and Ridge shingles, Pro-Cut Starter shingles and Gorilla Guard 30 underlayment.
Sold On Atlas
Ever since Residential Roofing began installing Atlas Roofing products, Max Curtis has become a walking advertisement for the company.
“In every presentation I give, I tell my customers about the benefits of Atlas products and a Signature Select Roofing System,” he said. “Every worker on the Residential Roofing crew wears an Atlas logo shirt every day on the job.”
Curtis is the true example of an "Atlas Guy" in every way. He’s so confident in the quality of Atlas products that he has talked several roofing contractors in neighboring areas to become Atlas Guys too.
