Benefits to Specifiers


The Roofing Application Standards and Accepted Roofing Systems Manual become part of the project specifications. Concerns about professional liability are reduced by referencing industry-recognized roofing application standards that are supported by the Warranty Certificate.

ARCA standards are developed in Alberta to meet Alberta conditions. Approved products and installation requirements are assurance of quality and performance.

On-going regular quality assurance inspections carried out by independent ARCA Warranty Ltd. accepted roofing inspectors, retained by the building owner, ensure the standards are being strictly enforced.

Second year anniversary inspections, administered by ARCA ensure workmanship defects discovered within the first two years of Warranty coverage are repaired by the contractor member at no cost to the owner, regardless if the roof leaks or not.

The specifier has access to a complimentary service to review project specifications and details. (Contact ARCA Technical Department).

In the event the roofing contractor of record is unable to fulfill their obligation, ARCA will take over responsibility of the warranty term.
