Eco-friendly Roofing Solutions

There are various benefits that come from green roofs, but two of the main advantages are that they are not just economical, they’re ecological as well.

Over the last two decades, there has been an increased demand for green roofs, yet quite often a building will have to be designed to incorporate a green roof while careful considerations should always be made. With an eco-friendly roofing solution, such as a green roof, your project can contain natural surface areas and ultimately benefit the urban environment.

Because a green roof contains plants, it does not mean that it is less efficient in wet conditions. The plants can absorb large amounts of water, preventing it from heading immediately to the drainage systems, while the remaining water will evaporate over time.

Not only does an eco-friendly roof withstand severe weather conditions, but it can also increase the life expectancy of the waterproof layer, meaning there is likely to be a need for pricey maintenance and roof replacements.
