Going Green (In Places You Don’t Expect)

We are sure you hear the term “go green” quite often these days. Here at The Roof Doctor, we are taking steps to go green! We’ve just began to eliminate paper in the office, so in light of this decision we decided to educate you on green roofing!

What is a Green Roof?

There are two types of green roofs, intensive and extensive. Intensive green roofs hold more weight (80-150 lbs per square foot), therefore they can support an entire rooftop garden, with trees, grass, flowers, shrubs, and so on. Extensive green roofs hold less weight (15-50 lbs per square foot), and generally only consist of grass or ground cover, therefore requiring less maintenance.
