A green roof is the term applied when vegetation such as sedum, plants and trees, are installed on a building.

There are three main reasons why green roofs are becoming more popular

1. A growth in sustainable technology
2. The fact that they aid planning consent
3. The huge benefits for the environment

Our Green Roof systems can be easily installed on New and Existing Buildings further to application of one of our high performance systems.
