Vegetative roofs serve several purposes for an industrial building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife, increasing benevolence, decreasing stress of the people around the roof, helping to lower urban air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect some industrial roofs can cause.
A green roof, or living roof, is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation over a waterproof roofing membrane. Green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife and decreasing stress of the people around the roof. In addition, vegetative roofs help to lower urban air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect.
The upfront cost of an industrial vegetative roofing system can sometimes be as much as double what a normal roofing system would cost. However, the long term cost of maintaining an industrial roofing system over a forty year period will be drastically reduced with a vegetative roof.
The roof you choose for your new industrial building is a critical decision, as it provides shelter to some of your biggest assets: your people, your equipment and/or your products. American Roofing & Metal has been trusted to work on such key projects as the Historic Belle of Louisville, Louisville Water Company Filtration, Muhammad Ali Museum, University of Louisville’s Grawmeyer Hall, and many more.
