The One Building

A Simple Solution from a Single Source

 Architectural Metal Systems, a division of American Buildings Company, is proud to introduce you to our new roofing warranty initiative.  We call this program “The One.”     

What this means is that we offer Roofers, Architects and Customers the opportunity to obtain the system, roof, framing and rigid board insulation from One Resource and One Company. 

It is easy, competitively priced and guaranteed.  When you go with AMS and DOW, our qualified and certified roofing contractors can provide you the entire roof package by combining the engineering and the insulation all in one easy system.

And we can offer the only 20 year guaranteed “R” value warranty in roofing.  If that isn’t enough to convince you, there is no additional charge for the 20 year DOW Warranty.

Ease of use, competitive pricing, quality product, warranties and the assurance of the total system makes your next project run smoothly with confidence that AMS and DOW have you covered.  For more information on the AMS products, contact us at 800-621-5020 or
