A green roof is planted over a waterproofing membrane and may also include additional layers such as root barriers, drainage and irrigation systems.
Green roofs can be classified as extensive, semi-intensive, or intensive, depending on the depth of the planting medium, maintenance and upkeep they require.
- Extensive – self-sustaining and require minimum maintenance
- Semi-Intensive – wider range of plant options and require routine maintenance
- Intensive – larger growing medium, plants & trees requiring a lot of maintenance
Our team at Specified Roofing will work to design the suitable green roofing system for every roof based on the specific requirements of the building owner.
