What Is a Green Roofing System?
A green roofing system involves covering a roof (either fully or partially) with vegetation. The vegetation is planted in soil or another growing medium, which lays on top of a waterproofing membrane. Some green roofs include additional layers for proper plant growth and building protection, such as a root barrier.
While green roofs are still relatively uncommon, they are growing more popular all the time. Their increasing popularity is largely due to the economic and environmental benefits that this type of roofing offers. Because of the environmental benefits, in particular, many cities now incentivize business owners to install green roofing systems.
Advantages of Green Roofing Systems
Green roofing systems benefit both the owners of the building and the community at large. Here are some of the key advantages of installing a green roof:
- Energy efficiency: The plants on a green roof will absorb and reflect sunlight, helping to keep your building cool. As a result, you will enjoy increased energy efficiency – and lower air conditioning bills – than you might with another type of roof.
- Longevity: Green roofs absorb heat, rainfall, and other forces that can wear down a roof. Because of these protective properties, a green roofing system can more than double your roof’s lifespan. A well-kept green roof may last up to 60 years before needing to be replaced.
- Stormwater management: Green roofs’ plants absorb a significant amount of rainfall that would otherwise end up on the streets. This helps to manage stormwater that could overwhelm the drainage system or even cause a flash flood in the city.
- Reduced heat: Green roofs have been proven to reduce urban heat. By installing a green roof for your business, you will help keep Austin summers livable, even as the city continues to grow.
- Air quality improvement: Plants on a green roof absorb carbon dioxide from the air and convert it into oxygen. If you install a green roof system, you will be investing not only in a durable and energy-efficient roof for yourself but also in the purification of Austin’s air.
