Roof Gardens/Root Barriers

Roof Gardens (Green Roofs) are popping up on many new and existing roofs. Major cities and suburbs have become home of this desirable oasis on what is otherwise a very mundane and barren area of any many buildings.

The benefits of installing a Roof Garden:

  • Enhanced aesthetic value and user appeal.

  • Sound Insulation

  • Increased cooling efficiency and lower energy costs.
