Reasons to choose a green roof for 2021
So why choose a green roof? Are there other reasons beyond saving the environment? Well, the simple answer is YES. There are a wide variety of reasons to choose a green roof for 2021, and these include:
- water management- because of the plants, green roofs 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 means that some of the pressure on the drains, to deal with the impact of heavy rainfall, is greatly reduced.
- longevity- a green roof will last for a lot longer than other types of roof membrane. This is because the roof membrane is protected from the sunlight, and it will not experience drastic temperature changes like a black roof would. This can save you money on roof repairs and replacements in the long run. So, if you want a long lasting roof, choose a green roof.
- cleaner air- the plants on the green roof will help to mitigate the air pollution around your building, providing cleaner air for employees and customers.
