Since its inception in 1996, The Alliance has funded more than $5 million in research, educational and technical projects to help preserve a profitable and competitive industry.
Alliance members believe it is vital for the roofing industry to be on the cutting edge of research and technology so roofing work remains in the domain of roofing contractors and roofing suppliers. The Alliance looks to fund projects that help reinforce this idea. Keeping the roofing industry at the forefront of research and technology also includes continuing work with projects the Alliance currently funds. Ultimately, the Alliance looks for projects that enhance the performance of the U.S. roofing industry.
