GREEN ROOF DESIGN

Considered expanding your landscape to your roof? The concept of greenroofs, while not new, is now undergoing a big revival—a growing industry bucking economic recessions. Why the interest? More than just a "green" fad, we now understand the many environmental benefits and problems greenroofs solve in suburban/urban environments (mitigating stormwater pollution, reducing urban heat island effect, etc.) so much so, that many cities worldwide are adapting codes and providing incentives for installation.

As a homeowner, personal cost and environmental benefits include...

  • reduced heating and cooling costs
  • a longer lasting roof (30-40yrs, vs 10-15yrs for traditional)
  • noise reduction
  • fire retardation
  • blockage of electromagnetic radiation
  • increased value and marketability for your home
in addition, greenroofs can
  • provide added habitat
  • filter the air and add oxygen
  • divert waste to landfills of traditional asphalt shingles
  • help reduce the greenhouse effect
  • add aesthetic value
