Over a decade ago, Green Roofs made a spectacular entrance into the roofing marketplace.
The problem was that no one knew much about "who, what, where and how".
That has all changed today. Green roofs represent a potential solution to many of the problems created by urban development. These problems include loss of green space, increased storm water runoff and the Urban Heat Island Effect - all having a negative impact on our environment and energy usage.
Each Green Roof is specifically designed to be water tight.
There are a number of components that can be designed and
installed during the construction phase of the project.
Because it is always a "design build" consideration, and not
just a roof, many professionals such as Architects and
Engineers are normally involved from conception to
Environmentally Safe and Friendly
Green roofs are aesthetically pleasing as they restore green space through park like gardens that people can enjoy on the roof or from surrounding buildings.
Reduce Heat Island Effect
Replacing dark surfaced roof systems with a Green Roof will
reduce the temperature of the air above the roof system
which eliminates hot spots in urban environments.
Reduce Storm Water
Rainwater can be filtered, recycled or stored as
part of the design consideration for these roof
A green roof can be installed in manufactured tray systems
that are placed on an existing roof, or they can be
installed and planted on a newly designed and installed roof
Long Term Warranties
Long term System warranties are available for these roof types.
