Commercial Roofing Solutions from The Garland Company

What makes a roofing product “green”?

Incorporating post-consumer recycled tires and recycled glass bottles in our modified bitumen systems are two ways that make our products more eco-friendly. One of the most overlooked eco-friendly characteristics is the longevity and sustainability of a product.

All Garland systems are engineered and designed with the goal of reaching more than 30 years of service life. So, when many roofs fail within 10 years, Garland systems provide alternatives for those customers who are truly committed to long-term performance and sustainable design.

We use the Garland Greenhouse label to help our customers quickly identify our high-performance sustainable products.

What Makes a Roofing Product “Green”?

To earn the Garland Greenhouse label, a product must incorporate a combination of these characteristics:

  • Pre-consumer recycled content
  • Lowered volatile organic content (VOC)
  • Bio content
  • Highly reflective surfacing
  • End-of-life recyclability
  • Novel technology
  • Post-consumer recyclability
