Green Roofs are an increasingly popular design for commercial and industrial buildings as they are an eco-friendly and creative alternative to traditional flat roofing projects. Sage BEC are experienced with Green and Brown Roof Systems and are approved installers for IKO, Alumasc & Bauder. Also referred to as a Living Roof or Eco-Roof, these systems install a layer of vegetation over a waterproofing membrane on the roof of a building. They are recognised for positively contributing to the issue of declining green spaces in urban environments as they offer a number of ecological and economical benefits.
Green roofing is exactly what it sounds like; a living green space on your roof! Whilst green roofs are best suited to commercial properties, they can work just as well for homes, particularly if you are a budding gardener with limits to space. Made up of durable, climate-appropriate plants and materials, they are a great way to invest in your environment, even if you don't have a garden. Extensive green roofing systems are constructed using a low maintenance sedum planting (succulents) grown on a 'blanket' that is installed by rolling it out on top of the roof like turf.
Green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife, and helping to lower urban air temperatures and combat the heat island effect. At Everlast we have a proven track record of installing quality Green Roofs. There are two types of green roofs: intensive roofs, which are thicker and can support a wider variety of plants but are heavier and require more maintenance, and extensive roofs, which are covered in a light layer of vegetation.
Urban development over the last 50 years has led to the paving over of large areas of countryside with cities and supporting infrastructure. In addition, cities are increasingly impervious to water, reducing permeable ground to absorb rainwater run-off leading to potential environmental problems such as flash flooding. Green roofs retain a very high percentage of rainwater and provide slow, controlled water run-off. They also improve air quality by attracting particles to the vegetation and soil.
In an increasingly environmentally conscious world with global targets in place for the reduction of CO2 gases in our atmosphere, Green roofs offer not only a more environmentally friendly solution but also the possibility of a new recreational space without sacrificing any of the benefits of a modern roof. Green roofs can also help with the aesthetic elements of your building helping the structure blend in with its local surroundings and environment. Working collaboratively with our partners, the specialist LRL team can design the best green roof solution for your building ensuring that all requirements are met and selecting the best suited vegetation.
What's more, they can provide natural habitats for wildlife and they absorb storm water thereby reducing run-off into overworked sewer systems. On a wider scale, in city environments, green roofs improve air quality by absorbing pollutants and by helping to reduce the urban heat island effect. City and suburban developments absorb and trap heat whereas evaporation from a green roof has been shown to sool surrounding air temperatures. A green roof must, like any other roof, protect the building from the elements via a high quality, totally dependable waterproof membrane.
Our green roof options include flat or pitched solutions installed as either high or low maintenance as dictated by the specification and design. Not only are the environmentally friendly with a pleasing aesthetical appearance they reduce the need for regular maintenance and perform vital environmental functions such as providing a place for insects, birds, wildlife and other plants to breed and germinate. Our expert team are fully experienced to provide professional advice and quotations for all your roofing needs.
Single Ply Systems consist of waterproof membranes which are applied to the roof area and upstand details, and are an excellent weatherproofing option to ensure your flat roof remains healthy. One of the benefits of a single ply system is the variation of installation available, including ballasted roofs, green roofs, and is also adapted to cope with high wind uplift. Applied directly to the roof deck, over a vapour barrier, insulation or a combination of layers, the membrane is sealed using adhesives or seam welding (or both!) and comes with a warranty of up to 30 years.
