Green/Living Roofs

What is a green, or living roof?

A green roof or living roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane.

There are plenty of good reasons to incorporate a green roof into a new build or renovation.

Green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife and decreasing stress of the people around the roof by providing a more aesthetically pleasing landscape, and helping to lower urban air temperatures.

Green roofing has the following benefits:

  • Lower energy bills
  • Dramatically extends the life of your waterproof membranes
  • Increases biodiversity
  • Insulation from noise and sound
  • Improved air quality in your building
  • Reduces storm water runoff
  • Easy on the eye!
