Why opt for a green roof?

Opting for a green roof is above all a matter of taste and aesthetics. It’s an original way to decorate your roof, and therefore your home. It’s also an eco-friendly initiative that brings green into your environment. If your home has little outdoor space, the roof is an excellent alternative for creating a garden and planted area.

Green roofs are particularly popular in large conurbations to limit urban pollution. Green plants absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen, helping to clean up the air in large cities.

What conditions must be met to build a green roof?

A green roof isn’t built just any old way. Your roof needs to be landscaped before you start planting, otherwise you risk premature damage and water infiltration. It’s advisable to call in the professionals for this kind of project.

A waterproof membrane must be installed between the ground and the roof deck to prevent water penetration. Nor should the plants exceed a certain height.
