GREEN ROOFING SOLUTIONS

  
Certified Green Roof Professionals 
As one of only a few commercial roofing companies in Georgia with Certified Green Roof Professionals (GRP) on staff, Whitco Roofing Inc. possesses the knowledge required to design, build and maintain green roof systems that meet the most up-to-date standards in the ever-evolving green roof industry.

When you contact Whitco Roofing about a green roof, the first thing our GRP-certified project manager will do is schedule a meeting to discuss what you hope to achieve with your green roof and determine what options are available for turning your roof green.

Green roofs take on many forms - from deep, intensive systems capable of supporting shrubs and trees to shallow landscapes consisting of just a few inches of growth medium and plant material. Selecting the proper green roof depends on a building’s load-bearing capacity, type of existing roof and other critical factors that will be discussed in an initial consultation.
