Benefits of A Green Roof
A Green Roof, often referred to as a living roof or vegetated roof offers numerous benefits for the environment and building occupants. Here are some key benefits of having a Green Roof in your living/commercial spaces:
1. Improve Air Quality
Besides releasing oxygen into the atmosphere, a Green Roof can filter contaminants such as carbon dioxide, particulate matter, and several airborne toxins, which leads to healthier indoor and outdoor air quality.
2. Extend Lifespan of Roof
A Green Roof extends the lifespan of the roof by shielding its waterproofing membrane against UV rays and temperature fluctuations.
3. Energy Savings
A Green Roof offers natural insulation, which reduces the need for heating in winter and cooling in the summer, which can result in energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
4. Enhance Visual Appeal & Create Recreational Spaces
A Green Roof adds greenery and natural beauty, enhancing the overall visual appeal of offices, shopping malls, and residential and commercial spaces. Additionally, a Green Roof can be designed for recreational purposes, offering building occupants a serene and accessible space to unwind and enjoy.
*It is essential to bear in mind that the benefits of a Green Roof can vary depending on factors like the roof’s design, location, and upkeep. A Green Roof requires careful planning, installation, and proper maintenance to be effective over the long run.
