Green Roofing

A green roof or living roof is a roof that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproof membrane.

Green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, creating a habitat for wildlife and they are excellent for providing an extra layer of insulation.

At Select Roofing we have a dedicated team of green roofing experts. These experts can assist with

  • Green Roof Design
  • Green Roof Installation

While every green roof is different, there are basically two types of green roofs. These are

  1. Intensive roofs
  2. Extensive roofs

Intensive roofs tend to be thicker and can support a wider variety of plants but are heavier and require more maintenance.

Extensive roofs which are covered in a light layer of vegetation and are lighter than an intensive green roof.

At Select Roofing you can rest assured that you are dealing with a team of Green Roofing experts who can assist you with the design and implementation of either an intensive or extensive green roof.

We also only work with the best suppliers when creating our green roofs such as Bauder and Moy Materials / Paralon.
