Description

Article on Green roofs

Green roofs, often referred to as eco-roofs or living roofs, are low-slope membrane roofs covered with a growing medium and plants to create a living roof system. They are popular overseas, but despite providing several environmental benefits, they are not so common in New Zealand. They should be constructed as a warm roof where the insulation is installed over the substrate.

They deliver substantial environmental gains, so while New Zealand is slow to jump on the green roof bandwagon, there’s reason to think this will change.
