Green Roof Systems
Having a “green roof” in our industry simply means you are protecting the inside of your building not only from the destructive forces of mother nature but are providing a solution to lower energy costs inside the building.
More and more property owners and building managers are seeking LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. This means they are looking to newer, more effective industry trends and turning away from dated building principles.
One of these industry trends is building energy-efficient roofing through the use of single-ply membranes. This product is leading the way for commercial buildings in need of a more energy-efficient interior with superior exterior protection. Reflective single-ply membranes can offer significant cost savings for building managers and property owners. They are especially effective in warmer climates, such as Georgia, where there is frequent air conditioning use.
Green Roof Advantages
Beyond exterior protection, a green roof can help keep the inside of the building cool so that energy costs are kept at a minimum. Other advantages of using energy-efficient roofing include:
- Lower energy costs
- LEED Certification value
- Energy Star Approval
- High-end protection from Mother Nature
