Imagine looking out onto your roof terrace, extension or even over your main roof areas and seeing a field of green and yellow provided by the planting of a green, or natural roof. Green roofs have become one of the most exciting developments in sustainable building design and, in some areas, regulations and incentives make it desirable to place a green roof on a home or building. Sometimes called vegetated roofs, eco roofs, or living roofs there is little doubt that green roofs offer a number of social, environmental and economic benefits including reducing water run off and offsetting carbon emissions.
A green roof can be installed onto our single ply system and, depending on load capabilities and other application-driven requirements, can be planted with herbs, grasses, flowers, even trees, in an exciting variety of colors, textures, scents and heights.
