Greenroof - Roofscapes®

The roof is a forgotten element on most buildings. It need not be. Designed and built as a purposeful element, roofs can be very environmentally friendly, aesthetically pleasing and economically justified.

On a large scale, greenroofs reduce "greenhouse gas emissions," have a positive impact on humidity, air quality and reducing heat in the structure and the surrounding neighborhoods, the so-called urban "heat island" effect. In conjuction with other green installations, greenroofs can play a role in altering the climate and even the weather of a city as a whole besides changing carbon dioxide to oxygen. Greenroofs also remove heavy metal particulate materials from rainwater and dramatically reduce stormwater runoff which can decrease the need to expand or rebuild related stormwater infrastructure.

Greenroofs reduce exterior noise pollution, by as much as 40 to 50 decibels. Tax credits for greenroofs are available in an increasing number of jurisdictions including New York, Chicago, Washington, Maryland, Portland and Seattle. The many environmental and economic benefits of greenroofs more than justify their cost.
