Using Green Roof on your Commercial Building
Times are changing, and with it the roofing industry also does. In the 21st century, a lot of people and companies still do not see how they can use the nature and its power instead of exploiting it. We understand that you want the best for your commercial building. After all, your business is something you built and worked hard to achieve. And we understand that you don’t want to simply jump into conclusions on roofing. Many people still think that eco-friendly automatically means low quality, but that is a complete cracker. Today we are going to show you how you can have yourself a safe, reliable, durable roof while helping the environment a lot. A green factor in doing your business is always desirable, and it makes your reputation go up, but don’t just think about that. Think about how you can make money plus save the planet. Is there a better combination? We are going to cover something that is the ultimate way how to mend those two things together: green roofing. A trend that slowly rises and we are so happy to say that.
Structure is the key
A green roof is distinctive by one huge element; its structure. While other roofing types are simply put on the roof base, green roofing is much more than that. Layers are the key in its construction. There are multiple layers, and they are all connected. This means that every layer has to function properly for a roof to perform its best. The first layer that is put on the base is a waterproof membrane. It is not biodegradable, so it guarantees you that your company will stay safe and leak free. The fabric is placed on top of it, and it protects (the next layer) drainage system from damaging. The draining system is extremely important as it provides the plants with enough water but still takes care of the excess water. There is another fabric put on it to prevent clogging it because of an engineered soil. This ground keeps the first layer, vegetation fresh. The top layer, or the vegetation, is exactly why this roofing option is fantastic.
What green roof offers?
Now, we are sure that you are interested in why and how the environment can profit from this. But just to make sure we have your attention, we are going to cover the benefits related to you. The green roofing system is a big starting expense, we have to mention that. However, it will save you a great amount of money in a long term. If you are planning to keep running your business, then this is the roofing option for you. Business owners deal with big expenses for heating or air conditioning. A green roof can help you out with that. It acts as an isolator so your bills should be way lower. Repairs will almost never be needed, maybe some inspection here and there but overall green roofing offers you a stable and safe roof for your commercial needs. This also goes for replacement; you can forget about replacing it for many years to come. Now let’s talk about the environment. The green roof has the power of reducing carbon monoxide in the air. Every day a huge amount of this gas is being produced and let into the atmosphere. It acts as a slow killer for nature and therefore, us. Green roofing also reduces the heat island effect wich is one of the biggest problems today. It can over time neutralize acid rains that ruin many green surfaces. We believe that by now you are already thinking about this option!
