Garland manufactures nearly all the products we sell and has done so since our inception in 1895. We are committed to investing in the most advanced technologies, implementing the latest quality control procedures, maintaining an experienced work force, and — most importantly — doing whatever it takes to get the job done right. To ensure our Garland roofing products are manufactured to perform above industry standards, our multi-million dollar production facilities use state-of-the-art microprocessor controls that provide flexible, accurate quality control management for optimum rooftop performance.
Every Garland-manufactured product begins with raw materials of the highest quality.
Our product line includes more than 200 different products representing various combinations of reinforcement materials, surfacing materials, polymer components, and specific additives such as fire retardants, fibers, and fillers. Through vertical integration, Garland is frequently able to implement the same rigorous quality standards that are applied to our end products, to our raw materials. Additionally, many of our long-time manufacturing employees are able to discern variations in batch consistency even before quality control has run its checks.
Raising the Industry's Bar of Performance Through Research and Development
Our team of research and development experts continually develop innovative product and service offerings that provide customers with a wide range of solutions best suited for their particular needs.

The International Organization for Standardization was founded in 1946, in Geneva, Switzerland, to create and maintain international standards for the manufacture, testing, and quality of products from credit cards to software to quality systems. Today, the organization is comprised of government, business, and industry representatives from over 100 nations worldwide, and ISO 9001 registration has become the world standard for quality system excellence.
ISO 9001 is the organization's quality standard developed specifically for manufacturing and service companies like The Garland Company. The ISO 9000 family of standards provides a measure by which to judge a company's total involvement in and commitment to a philosophy of continuous improvement and customer satisfaction. In 1994, Garland became the first roofing manufacturer in the United States to become ISO 9000 certified.
