What are the advantages of a green roof?
There are a number of benefits and advantages to installing a green roof for any property, commercial or domestic. These advantages include:
- Improving water management- because of the plants used for green roofs, the network of roots can keep hold of the water that they capture, and soak this up over time. Once full, the water that flows off the roof is a lot slower than water flowing off a usual roof. This can reduce pressure on the drains during heavy rainfall.
- Protecting the roof membrane- a green roof will last for a lot longer than other flat roof options, and this is because the roof membrane is protected from the sunlight and elements with the layers of green roofing. UV exposure and dramatic changes in temperature can cause the roof membrane to degrade, but the green roof does not have to suffer the same effects.
- Creating wildlife habitats- green roofs can attract a wide range of insects and pollinators like bees and butterflies, which can help local eco-systems to thrive.
