First Presbyterian Church

ATAS International Inc.

This First Presbyterian Church was established in 1897 and a small frame church was built. The stone structure was built in 1921 with a slate roof. The roof was later replaced with shingles, which lasted until the last 15 years when repair after repair had to be made on this roofing material.

A member of the congregation referred Frye Roofing. Due to the extent of the damage, there were two alternatives: replace with shingles again or install ATAS International Inc. metal roofing. The church decided that ATAS International Inc.’s product was the better material, but the shingles were cheaper. For monetary reasons, the church decided to install new shingles.

Two weeks later, Frye Roofing informed the church the shingles had not been ordered; they were in the process of talking about pricing with ATAS International Inc. A price agreement had been reached that matched that of the shingles. The church agreed and over 4,500 sq. ft. of ATAS International Inc.’s Advanta shingles, made from galvanized steel, were installed.

Advanta shingles are durable, lightweight, weather-resistant, non-combustible, and environmentally friendly. ATAS International Inc.’s Advanta panel is a one-foot wide by three-foot long panel that provides the appearance of dimensional shingles. Advanta Shingle has an embossed pattern and is available in nine standard colors and nine Advanta Americana Series colors. The color chosen for the First Presbyterian Church was Sierra Tan.
