Commercial Green Roofing in Coquitlam
A sustainable way of living is not only important to consider, it is necessary for the continued success of those who come after us. Green roofing is one of the most effective ways to reduce a carbon foot print when it comes to construction contractors. But how does it work?
Green roofs, sometimes referred to as living roofs or eco roofs, are completely or partially covered by vegetation. The roof is constructed with many of the same methods used on other roofs, but a specialized waterproof membrane is added. A specialized soil is placed on top of the membrane and then the plants are added.
Important to note: Most existing roofs can be made into green roofs without a complete roof replacement. A structural engineer will be needed to assess the current roof for stability and any underlying issues to see if the existing roof can bear the new weight. If you are considering a re-roofing project, contact the experts at Gelinas Roofing & Renovations.
Benefits of Eco Roofing
The main benefit of green roofing is to improve overall air quality as plants absorb carbon dioxide and pollutants while producing oxygen. But that is not their only benefit.
Cleaner runoff: The water that runs off a green roof is significantly cleaner than the water that comes off traditional commercial roof. Helps storm drains: As green roofs help retain water, there is less water that ends up in the storm drain after it has rained. This helps reduce the stress on the storm drain infrastructure.
Energy efficiency: When the sun shines the plants absorb the heat which means less heat transferring into the building and less work for your climate control systems. Similarly, as the soil and plants add another level of insulation, less heat is lost through the roof during colder months.
Improves your image: In business, conveying the right image can make the difference between success and failure. Having a green roof says to your potential clients that you care about doing your part to make Coquitlam a better, healthier place.
