Living Roof Installers –
Living roofs installed by Choice Roofing Group provide your home or business a chance to do more than give back to the environment. Building a living roof actually allows your home or business to become a living, breathing piece of the environment. If you decide to install a green roof, professional installers will transform your current roofing system into a beautiful grassy garden. Having green roofs installed advocates environmentalism, while simultaneously solving the problems of conventional roofs:
- Last longer than conventional roofs
- Reduces energy costs by means of natural insulation
- Absorbs storm water with no need for expansive drainage system
Types of Living Roofs –
There are two main living roof tops; intensive and extensive. Having intensive green roofs installed are, in essence, like having a park installed on your structure. These intensive roofs have extremely complex support structures allowing them to carry the load of shrubs, benches and small trees. In contrast, extensive green roofs support much less weight and are mainly covered with grass or some other ground cover. Having extensive green roofs installed is definitely done solely for the Eco friendly benefits, seeing as they do not function as a garden.
The Cost of Living Roofs –
The cost of having a green roof installed is significantly more than a traditional roof. The amount of planning and construction add up to a higher start up cost. But living roofs are far from out of reach! Because of the positive environmental impact having green roofs installed has been proven to produce, some cities are even offering green roof grants to homeowners and business who embrace it. Decide to embrace green roofing yourself and allow Choice Roofing Group’s expert installers to transform your roof into a stunningly beautiful, energy efficient and useful place.
