Green Roofing system

The green revolution is on the rise!

The rapidly increasing population is driving urbanization. Space is becoming scarce and nature in particular seems to have lost its place. At Enduroflex we want to go against this and we have a clear goal: to bring nature back to places where people are! We do this by transforming places into a green oasis. Not only do we give lost space on roofs and walls a new purpose, but we also like to work out complete green projects from A to Z. From a herb wall in a restaurant to the planting of monumental ruin walls. Every square meter of green space is a step towards a pleasant and sustainable future for us!

The purpose of a roof is that it protects us from wind and weather. A conventional roof perfectly meets those requirements, but it can also be much more than just protection. As a green roof for example!

With a green roof, the covering consists mainly of living plants. The name ‘green roof’ is actually a bit misleading. After all, such a roof does not have to be really green. The color depends on the choice of plants, the seasons and the weather conditions.

Only plants such as roof coverings are of course not sufficient. A correct basis with a suitable structure structure, a suitable growth medium and the right facilities for drainage are essential. It therefore requires a great deal of knowledge and expertise to create a beautiful and healthy green roof, and that is precisely where Enduroflex’s expertise lies .

Enduroflex and DuO Green has for years been THE reference in extensive green roofs with more than 350,000 m² of installed green roofs. Our achievements range from intimate projects of less than 20 m² to large prestigious projects of more than 20,000 m². With our different systems we can serve everyone as desired. We even have some unique lightweight solutions, so that no square meter of roof has to remain unused.

Do you trust the installation of your green roof to a specialist in green or a specialist in roofs? A compromise that you don’t have to make with Enduroflex because our experience is unparalleled!

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:
Increases Lifespan

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.

Noise Reducing

Because a green roof considerably increases the total roof package, noises are added.

Air Purifying

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.

Positive Image

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.

Increased Biodiversity

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.

Lowers Stress

Studies show that green environments have a positive influence on the state of mind and physical health of people.

green roofing system details


Every type of green roof needs maintenance.

Extensive green roofs require very little maintenance. In the first year of life it is advisable to inspect the extensive vegetation preferably every three months. After that, one inspection per year is sufficient.

Maintenance is usually limited to:

  • fertilize with nutrients
  • remove any weeds
  • sow where necessary
  • remove general pollution, including accumulated leaves;
  • check all roof details.

Intensive green roofs generally require the same maintenance level as a normal garden. The choice of plants will determine the extent and frequency of the necessary care.


Wonderful, turning your roof into a green oasis. Something for everyone: do you opt for a simple green roof or do you prefer a real vegetable garden? Everything is possible! 

In principle, green roofs can be applied to any surface, as long as the load-bearing capacity of the roof allows the permanent load on the green roof. We can divide green roofs into two types, based on the required maintenance:

This type of green roof requires little maintenance and can consist of mosses, succulents and herbs. These slow-growing plants do not need to be pruned or mowed and, moreover, can live without water for a long time. No problem so if it is not raining.

Not only are the plants able to store a lot of water, but the excess rainwater will also be released in a delayed manner. After all, an extensive green roof acts as a natural buffer in the event of heavy rainfall.

Not only flat roofs but also slightly sloping roofs (1-35 °) can be provided with an extensive green roof. The green roof also acts as extra protection for the roof against UV radiation, extreme temperatures and noise.

The maintenance level of an intensive green roof is a lot higher than with an extensive green roof and, just like with a traditional garden, depends on the choice of plants. For example, grass will have to be mowed frequently during the summer months and trees and shrubs need to be pruned occasionally.

Just as with an extensive green roof, excess rainwater will be released in a delayed way since the green roof acts as a natural buffer. The green roof also acts as extra protection for the roof against UV radiation, extreme temperatures and noise.

The considerable substrate layer does, however, create greater structural requirements and you must take this into account in the design phase of the building.
