WHAT IS A GREEN ROOF? 

Vegetative roof systems, or green roofs, are living roofs.

Utilizing live plants to create a roofing system that doubles as a beautiful green space. Typical vegetative systems involve multiple layers including a durable waterproof foundation, a root management system, drainage layers, and some type of growing medium.

  • Extensive green roofs  lightweight, low-maintenance roofs with low water requirements. 

  • Intensive green roofs  includes more robust vegetation and can be rooftop garden/park spaces.

  • semi-intensive green roof  hybrid green roof that is a step up from the extensive green roof.

How CAN A GREEN ROOF Benefit Your Commercial Property?

Green roofs offer a wide range of environmental, practical, and economical benefits. Sustainable architecture continues to grow in popularity and importance with incentive programs like LEEDS and ENERGY STAR. While there are many techniques and designs for eco-friendly facilities, one of the most impactful is the vegetative roof system.
