Homeowners don't want boring, dull views of their flat roof extensions anymore. Homeowners want to see greenery, particularly in built up cities, such as London, where green space is limited. 

Nowadays, people want more from their homes and have the cash to make it happen. In fact, some local authorities are more inclined to giving planning permission if a green roof is included in the plans. Stay ahead of your competitors with this easy to install service.

3. They're Easy to Sell to Your Customers

The Benefits of Green Roofs

  • Reduce heating by improving a roof's thermal efficiency 
  • Reduce cooling loads on a building significantly – a concentration of green roofs in an urban area can reduce the city’s average temperatures during summer by mitigating the heat island effect.
  • Create a natural habitat
  • Filter pollutants & carbon dioxide out of the air, helping to lower disease rates such as asthma
  • Improve a building's sound insulation - the growing media helps to block lower frequencies and the plants block higher frequencies.
  • Very little maintenance is needed - the water stored in the substrate and the water retention system is taken up by the plants from where it is returned to the atmosphere 

4. They're Budget Friendly
