Green Roof Assessment Phase
At Green Theory Roofing, we take pride in installing the most advanced and effective green roof systems. Our process starts with a thorough assessment of the property to formulate an effective design. Some of the considerations we evaluate include:
- Roof structure (Inverted, sloped, warm, cold)
- The average temperature
- The average amount of rainfall
- Amount of ponding water on the membrane
- Water retention capabilities
- Potential erosion
- Weight limit
Green Roof Design Phase
After completing our assessment, we begin our design phase. During the design phase, we address the unique challenges of creating a sustainable green roof system. We carefully customize our green roof systems to thrive in a specific location.
Another vital part of our process is creating the substrate and determining the substrate depth. Our substrate layers are lightweight but contain rich organic mineral components that provide essential nutrition for vegetation.
Our substrate also retains and supplies water for greenery during dry seasons. To develop the right substrate, we carefully consider vegetation, wind load, structural requirements, and drainage.
Green Roof Installation Phase
Green Theory Roofing will also manage and install green roof systems according to client specifications and local building requirements. Leveraging our installation experience, we can professionally set up green roof systems for any style of roof.
There has never been a better time to invest in a green roof system. The popularity of green roof systems continues to grow across the Greater Vancouver region due to their versatility and environmental benefits. Contact us today to learn more.
