GREEN ROOFING SYSTEMS
Sustainability and Economic Development Go Hand in Hand
We Take Pride in Perfect Performance
A green roof system utilizes growing vegetation planted on top of an existing roof structure. These roofs provide significant advantages to building owners and the communities they serve. Research has identified the following benefits of well-designed, well-maintained green roofs for commercial and public buildings:
Lower Energy Costs
Green roofs reduce building energy use by providing shading, thermal mass, and insulation.
Longer Roof Life
A green roof usually has 1.5x to 2x the life expectancy of a conventional roof.
Reduced Stormwater Runoff
A green roof captures rain and reduces runoff that often overburdens municipal sewer systems.
Reduced Heat Island Effect
During hot weather green roofs lower building temperature and the air above it.
Green roofs are an acoustic buffer that decreases sound resonance in the surrounding area.
Improved Air Quality
Green roofs absorb carbon dioxide, release oxygen, and capture airborne pollutants.
Green roofs provide an aesthetically pleasing view, adding beauty and value to buildings.
Green roofs generate employment opportunities in the emerging field of urban agriculture.
Green roof development can attract forward-thinking businesses and industries.
Green roofs create new urban habitats for native plants and animals.
In Hospital Settings
Dedicated green space decreases patient stress, aides in the healing process, and creates a more positive experience.
Roofs Are Real Estate
Existing roofs can be transformed into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, fully functional retail space. Adding garden roofs, plazas, and decks can greatly expand operational square footage.
