Also known as a living roof, a live roof or an eco roof, a green roof is an integrated, vegetated living system on top of a roof structure of a building designed to mimic ground gardens for all their benefits.
It is constructed of several physical layers, among them a waterproofing membrane. Other layers can include a protective root barrier, followed by a drainage board, a filter fabric, soil and various plantings via seeding, plant plugs or sedum mats.
The term green roof may also be used to indicate roofs that use some form of green technology, such as a cool roof, a roof with solar thermal collectors or photovoltaic panels.
When we originally wanted to construct a green roof, we had consulted two other companies before Skyspace. Once we met Costa, we knew exactly he was the one to do the job. He has great energy and enthusiasm, he is knowledgeable and reliable. His staff were very respectful and pleasant to work with. We love our green roof and we certainly made the right decision choosing Skyspace. Thanks again.Brett Davey,
Great work from Costa and his team. We installed two separate green roofs on different levels of our house. Adding a green roof on our bedroom roof has had a significant effect on reducing the temperature on hot days as it acts as a layer of insulation. Not only is it a beautiful aesthetic addition to our home, it also provides function. I would definitely choose Skyspace again!M. M.,
