Granite City Roofing has been putting low-slope roofs on businesses across Minnesota and border areas – from small retail shops to large manufacturing plants, healthcare facilities, and educational institutions – since 1972. We’re all about giving you the best roof for your needs, and we offer several types of low-slope roofing systems to make sure we can do just that.
Built-Up Roofing (BUR) Systems
Built-up roofing systems – or BUR for short – are a popular choice. A BUR system involves laying down several layers of tar and gravel, which gives your roof some serious protection against the elements. We work with top-notch manufacturers like Johns Manville, Garland, and TremCo to make sure you’re getting the best BUR system around.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Synthetic Rubber Roofing
Ethylene propylene diene monomer – commonly known as EPDM synthetic rubber roofing – is a durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane widely used in low-slope buildings worldwide. Its two primary ingredients – ethylene and propylene – are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM can be installed either fully adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted, and is available in black or white. We work with Carlisle, a top manufacturer, for our EPDM roofing installations.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Roofing Systems
Thermoplastic polyolefin roofing – also known as TPO – is a type of single-ply roofing system that’s known for its durability and energy efficiency. It’s made from a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber, making it resistant to UV rays and harsh weather. We install TPO roofing from trusted manufacturers like Carlisle, TremCo, and Johns Manville.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Roofing Systems
Polyvinyl chloride roofing systems – a.k.a PVC roofing – is made from two layers of PVC roof material with polyester acting as a reinforcement between the layers. The layers also include additives that give the roofing material flexibility and other benefits. The top layer is made UV-resistant and the bottom layer is flexible. With PVC roofs, you’re looking at a long lifespan and high resistance to wind, fire, and chemicals. We’re proud to install PVC roofing from manufacturers like Carlisle, TremCo, and Johns Manville.
