Going Gaga Over Green Roofing

A green roof is covered with vegetation. In essence a rooftop garden, green roofs were perfected in the 1960s in Germany, and have become fairly popular in numerous European countries. It is only in recent times however, that green roof technology has begun to catch on in the U.S.

More often than not, buildings have a waterproofing tensile membrane, over which the greenery is grown. A green roof is not the same as a rooftop garden. The second can have plants in containers, which is not actually part of the green roof system. In a green roof system the tensile waterproof membrane shields the building from water leakage, which can cause immense harm to the structure.

Building a green roof can serve a number of purposes. Going beyond beautifying your roof top, it can also supply insulation and reduce temperature and give many more benefits. You ideally should have an appropriately thought out green roof design, which is best suited and customized for your rooftop.

Not only are green roofs super for the environment, but they are also an exceptional investment. A correctly installed green roof can last a minimum of twice as long as characteristic roofing material, in that way saving you thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs.

Green Roofing is tremendous for city dwellers who often want for green space such as a yard or a deck. The addition of a green roof can supply a space to express one's creativity, and bring a bit of nature back to the city. In fact, by growing vegetation, you can invite insects, birds, and butterflies that would otherwise not have anywhere else to go. As a further benefit, green rooftops are aesthetically lovely and offer a visual contrast to the cement structures that dominate the cityscape.
