Convert your rooftop into a private, green oasis that saves energy

Start the design process with us now to enjoy your new roof this spring!

Installing green roofs is a smart way of re-investing in your building or home. A green roof will protect the roof membrane from future replacements, reduce your energy bills, and boost your property value by creating a new amenity space to relax and enjoy nature.

What is a green roof?

A green roof system is an extension of the existing roof that involves a durable waterproofing and root repellant system, a drainage system, filter cloth, a lightweight growing medium, and plants. Green roofs can be integrated with solar power and can include agriculture. Green roofs range significantly in style, function, and price.

Green roof gardens are sprouting up all around the country. Hotels, convention centers, arenas, and corporations are finding green roofs to be a great way to add an attractive park-like amenity space on top of their buildings, improve their brand image, and cut summer cooling costs. Schools and hospitals install green roofs to give people inside a chance to enjoy the mental health benefits of connecting with nature without even leaving the building. Co-ops and condominiums also use lush green roof gardens to upgrade the quality of life of their tenants, differentiate buildings from local marketplace competition, and see an increase in property value and rental rates. Who wouldn’t want to live in a building with a private park on the roof?

We will work with you to design a green roof system that fits your budget and improves your lifestyle.  Just ask us.
