WHAT IS A GREEN ROOF?
A Green Roofs also known as Eco-roof, Living Roofs or Oikosteges, provides an environmentally friendly option for those who want a stand out roof. Completely covered in vegetation, a green roof provides benefits to both the surrounding environment and the structure it covers.ENERGY SAVINGS
Green roofs have been proven to bring about significant energy savings, particularly during the summer cooling season in which single story buildings can experience a reduction of greater than 25% energy use. Plants transform heat and soil moisture into humidity, to create natural evaporative cooling. Each gallon of water that is transpired by the plants or evaporated from the roof surface liberates 8000 BTU of thermal energy.
Green roofs works well on low-sloped (non-pitched) roofs, on industrial, commercial, institutional, governmental and residential buildings. They can be installed on any building where the building is appropriately engineered and the owners are progressive-minded and value the many economic, environmental, and health benefits that come from vegetated roofs.
