Green roofs for new construction

Are you building a new home or building? Consider adding a green roof to your design! They create more usable space, add beauty to an ugly roof space, and can even provide a space to grow food.

The earlier you plan for green roofs, the more options you will have. We have been involved in projects where had we had been involved at the initial design phase, we could have saved the customer almost 50%!

There are many benefits to incorporating a green roof professional during the design phase. Even if you plan to add a green roof as a phase 2 of your project, you can make your project structurally ready for the future installation of a green roof.

Green roof process

Structural Requirements

The structural strength you build into your design, the more planting flexibility you will have. Adding additional structural capacity during the design phase is much easier than retrofitting later.
