Advice for homeowners with grants, permissions and inspections

Permaroof can offer help and advice for planning your green roof. Initial inspections and permissions are often required and structural improvements may be necessary. Green roofing is much heavier than more traditional roofing,  and it is wise to assess the roof deck to determine the load bearing capacity before works begin. Some local schemes offer grants towards the cost of green roofing. Find out more about how we can help.

It’s all in the planning

 

Planning your green roofing project is one of the most important stages. This is where the initial inspections and permissions are applied, and any structural improvements made if necessary. Green roofing is typically much heavier than more traditional systems and it is wise to assess the roof deck to determine the load bearing capacity before works begin. It is also worth checking with the local authority to see if planning or other development permissions need to be sought. Some local schemes offer grants towards the cost of green roofing – another good reason to enquire.

Types of green roof – your roof, your choice

You may already know that there are different types of green roofing installations. Which you choose will depend on how you plan to use your space when it is finished.

Extensive green roofs

Extensive green roof projects are perhaps the most common in a domestic setting. They can improve the aesthetic value of any garden building and create a haven for bees, birds and other wildlife.

With shallow planting and widespread coverage, extensive green roofs are, once established, extremely low maintenance as they look after themselves naturally.

Plants such as sedum, grasses and moss varieties are typically used.

Intensive green roofing

Intensive green roofs have typically deeper planting layers, which means a wider variety of garden plants, shrubs and sometimes trees are used.

These types of projects can be landscaped and used in the same way as a domestic garden, with the inclusion of pathways and areas for entertaining (subject to load-bearing capacity).

Intensive roofing is often seen on roof terraces and is popular in commercial projects.

Brown roofs (Biodiverse green roofing)

A brown roof, often referred to as biodiverse roofing or a rubble roof, is intended to mitigate the loss of habitat due to the increasing use of brownfield land for development near towns and cities.

Although they can be planted according to the intended use of the project, brown roofing is commonly similar to extensive, low maintenance green roofs in the main.
