Green Roofs

A green roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and soil, or a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane.

Stormwater Retention

  • Stormwater management can be met with a green roof.
  • The growing medium and vegetation absorb rainwater.
  • Decreased stress on sewer systems at peak flow times.

Temperature Control

  • Protects the roof membranes from harmful UV radiation and heat.
  • Reduces the size of the HVAC unit necessary.
  • Reduces the urban heat island effect.

Improve Air Quality

  • Reduce noise pollution for the occupants of commercial buildings.
  • Through the process of photosynthesis, animals and humans are supplied with oxygen.
  • A green roof will absorb heat and filter the air moving across it.

Public Benefits

  • Aesthetically pleasing to tenants above buildings with green roofs.
  • Access to the outdoors can increase productivity and morale.
