When properly installed, a green roof provides a number of benefits - not only to the building owner, but the entire community.
Some of the many benefits include:
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points
Extends the life of the roof
Storm water and interior noise reduction
Increased insulation and R-Value
Reduced heat island effect
Improved health/healing properties
Increased property value/marketability
Reduced building heating and cooling costs
To achieve these benefits, a vegetative roof system must be designed, installed and maintained taking critical factors into consideration. Each green roof is unique and requires careful consideration and planning to ensure its success.
