Great for the environment and your wallet
Green roofing systems are an environmentally friendly and efficient roofing system that enhances the integrity of existing roofs and promotes overall healthier surroundings. Green roofing systems are growing in popularity and have been developed to allow green growth, such as grasses and wildflowers, to grow on rooftops. Embedded in a lightweight soil replacement layer, these plants get all the nutrients they need to survive on a roof top, and the rain provides the same access to water as if they were growing on the ground.
A green roof reduces roof temperature to match the air around it. For example, a roof that might be 180 degrees under normal conditions would only be 85 or 90 degrees if it is a green roof. Your air conditioner works less in the summer and your heating unit works less in the winter, adding up to potentially sizable year-round cost savings. Green roof technologies not only provide the owners of buildings with a proven return on investment, but also represent opportunities for significant social, economic and environmental benefits, particularly in larger cities.
