Green Roofs and Walls
Barely a day goes by where you don’t hear or read about another green roof being installed. All we can say is: it’s about time! Green roofs’ main purpose is to capture and slow the release of storm water, easing the impact on our storm sewer systems. While you never hear much about storm sewers and their impact on our fragile fresh water supplies, be aware that what comes out of your tap is not infinite. Green roofs help to preserve the integrity of our water supply, while also beautifying our world, lowering our heating and cooling costs, and minimizing urban heat gain. Keep your eyes open and look up: there’s another green roof being installed!
