Green or garden roofing is a popular new trend in eco-friendly building. Basically, a garden is installed on your roof. The bottom layer consists of industrial grade waterproof material. Above that is a drainage foundation system. This layer retains just enough water to keep the plants from drying out while getting rid of excess water so there’s no damage to your roof. The next layer is a custom soil designed perfectly for your climate. Finally, the top layer is your chosen vegetation. There are many benefits to installing a garden roof. Green roofing reduces energey bills by 15-25%. It’s also an effective form of land optimization, allowing you to add more square footage onto your existing property. Green roofing often comes with federal as well as state and local tax benefits. A&Z garden roofing solutions are installed quickly for less disruption to your building. They come with waterproofing as a base to prevent leakage. Once you choose the plants you like, we guarantee to cover the during the critical early stages of growth. Other green roofing options include TPO and PVC. Both of these materials are white and therefore reflect UV rays. This greatly reduces energy consumption and fossil fuel emissions. One of our greenest options is solar panel roofing. You’ll be able to power your building with clean, renewable energy and enjoy government tax breaks. The natural light only skylights can provide beautifully illuminates your home or office and reduces your energy bill. There’s no need flip a switch when you have skylights. The sun does all the work for you! Finally, A&Z will always advise you on recovering your existing roofing system. Recovering your system produces less waste than tearing out a system completely.
