What Is Green Roofing?
Green roofing is a term that is thrown around a lot, and often it can seem to apply to different things. In some cases, green roofing can refer to a roof that reduces your building’s carbon footprint, such as a roof coating. By enabling the roofers to apply a roof coating over the existing roof, the existing roof won’t end up in a dump, contributing to landfill waste. Additionally, roof coatings can improve a building’s UV resistance, which in turn leads to less energy waste. In those ways, roof coatings are considered a green roofing option. In this context, green roofs are any roof that reduces a building’s environmental impact.
In other scenarios, the term green roofing applies to roofs that are quite literally green with vegetation. Commonly used across Europe, such roof systems are designed to not only cool the building they are on, but also the air around them. Roofs with organic plant life have been shown to reduce temperatures within heavily populated cities quite effectively. Additionally, these types of green roofs play a role in creating additional growing space for native plant species. By incorporating this type of green roof installation, centralized cities are able to reduce urban heat effects, as well as cut down on greenhouse gases produced by additional energy requirements. In some areas, green roofs have been used to cultivate vegetables for building inhabitants, as well as to support endangered local bird species.
