GREEN - Roofing System
A green roof offers many advantages. Both economically and ecologically, but of course also aesthetically.
We are happy to list a few advantages for you:
The green roof not only functions as an extra protective layer for your roof against UV radiation, weather and wind, but also protects against mechanical damage. This extends the life of your roof covering considerably.
Because a green roof considerably increases the total roof package, noises are added.
The vegetation on green roofs filters dust particles and absorbs gases, including CO2. During the biochemical process in which plants convert light into energy, they release the CO2 back into the atmosphere in the form of oxygen.
Increase Aesthetic Value
Empty surfaces are transformed into beautiful green zones that are perfectly visible from higher buildings. This indirectly increases the value of the building.
Visibly investing in nature will always receive a positive response.
Reduction Urban Heat Island Effect
In urban environments the air is drier and the temperature higher. In the summer the temperature in cities can be up to 7 ° C higher than in the countryside. This phenomenon is the result of the 'Urban Heat Island' effect. Green roofs counteract this phenomenon.
Every green roof is a natural habitat where fauna and flora have the opportunity to develop.
Delayed Drainage of Rainwater
Green roofs are capable of retaining water. The water therefore enters the sewerage system with some delay, which considerably reduces the risk of overloading.
Increase Efficiency of Solar Panels
According to research, the efficiency of solar panels on a green roof is 9 to 16% higher than the efficiency of solar panels on a normal roof.
Studies show that green environments have a positive influence on the state of mind and physical health of people.
