Commercial Green and Vegetative Roofing

What is a Green Roof?

A green roof is a roof that is partially or completely covered with vegetation planted over a waterproofing roofing membrane. They are also known as living roofs. 

The Environmental Benefits

Vegetative roofs decrease stress of the people around the roof, increase benevolence, absorb rainwater, act as insulation, create a habitat for wildlife, help to lower urban air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect.

Cost of a Vegetative Roof

The initial cost of a green roof might be double that of a normal roofing system. However, the long-term cost of maintaining commercial roofs over a forty year period can be drastically reduced with vegetative roofs. 

Your roof shelters your people, equipment and products. We have been trusted on key projects, such as the Historic Belle of Louisville, Louisville Water Company Filtration, Muhammad Ali Museum, University of Louisville's Grawmeyer Hall and many more sites.
