The Benefits of a Green Roof
In the modern 21st century, we are all focused on making the world environmentally friendly. From lowering global warming to solar panels, there are a whole range of ways we can help, including installing a green roof! In this blog, the team here at Valent Roofing are going to tell you all exactly what a green roof is and some of the benefits it can provide…
- A green roof is designed in order to reduce the run off storm water. During heavy rainfall, the run off can overwhelm the measures put in place to drain away the water and end up damaging the structures. A green roof allows for water to be retained for plants. In fact, some of this water is returned into the atmosphere during evaporation and transpiration.
- A green roof is exceptionally energy efficient because they reduce the heat flux through a roof. With less energy being used to heat or cool a building, a buyer can see significant savings. For example, in summer time the roof will protect a building from direct solar heat and during winter it will lower the amount of heat that is lost through the added insulation on the top.
