What is green roofing?

Green roofing has been around for thousands of years. Early green roofs consisted of moss, leaves and woven twigs to keep out the rain and later came reed or thatched roofing. Modern green roofing is a bit different. Consisting of layers of material, today’s green roofs can help with urban rainwater management and reduce surface flooding in some areas. They can also provide a haven for wildlife and this has in recent times contributed to its rise in popularity.

The construction of a green roof relies on a reliable base membrane to provide the waterproofing layer on the roof deck. EPDM membrane has a typical life expectancy of more than 50 years, making it the ideal, reliable base membrane for a long-lasting installation.

Liquid roofing can also provide a reliable base waterproofing layer for intensive green roofing. This can also be useful in the creation of walkways through extensive green roofs. Talk to the Permaroof green roof team to find out which is the best option for your project.

Planning your green roof

It’s all in the planning with a green roof! Right from the start, a green roof needs to be carefully planned, starting with an assessment of the project. A green roof is much heavier than a typical flat roof installation, so the first step is to calculate the current state of your roof before you begin. Get a surveyor or building inspector in to ensure the current roof deck will carry the additional weight. Remember that the soil and planting layers will absorb rainwater, which will add to the dry weight.

Skipping this step could prove a costly mistake once the green roof is completed. Some local authorities may require planning permission for a green roof, and this is worth checking out as part of the initial planning.

Permaroof UK can help you to plan your green roofing project. We can help you with every step from the base membrane to the top planting layer. Our flat roof kits can help seal the roof deck completely and give you a good grounding to work from. We can also help with trim to effectively seal around the gutter area and ensure no water ingress at this part of the roof.
