Benefits of Green Roofs
Not only are eco roofs more environmentally friendly, but they also provide a selection of practical and financial advantages. Some of the benefits of green roofs include:
As well as the practical benefits, living roofs also create a habitat for nature while hiding more unsightly rooftop features, such as pumps and vents. Furthermore, when installed on large, accessible flat roofs, they can also provide a functional outdoor space for seating or gardening. You can opt for partial installation or full covering, as well as choosing from a selection of plant types.
Green Roof Installations
Our green roofs are installed fully grown, with waterproof membranes and adequate drainage. Green roof installation improves your property’s thermal retention, keeping buildings warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Not to mention, choosing to install a green roof is also environmentally responsible.
