When living and working in bustling cities, it’s easy to forget that there’s still a place and need for nature in our immediate environments. Plants are good for our physical and mental wellbeing, after all. It’s one thing to have a few potted succulents in the office, but sometimes a more drastic change is required. Green roofing has emerged as a great solution for commercial property owners in Australia. In a previous blog, we spoke about the benefits of installing one. In this blog, we take it a step further by looking at why you should hire a team of professionals to do it.
Benefit #1 - The Entire Operation Will Comply With Building Health & Safety Requirements
There are many implications for health and safety when you make a change as big as this to the structure of your building. For example, some plants grow aggressively and compromise the structural integrity of the building, while others come with increased fire hazard. Professionals know which is which and are knowledgeable requirements that are in place, so you’ll always be on the right side of the regulations.
Benefit #2 – Professionals Come With Expertise And Experience
Arguably, the most important benefit of hiring professionals is the level of skill, years of experience, and access to the resources that they have. Everything is taken care of, so there’s no need to micromanage the process. This allows you to go on about your daily business without interruption.
Benefit #3 - You Get The Best Plants, Materials And Labour At A Reasonable Cost
Green roofing companies have networks of suppliers that provide them with all the necessary materials at specially negotiated prices. This affects how much you end up paying in the end, which comes up less than it would be if you walked into a shop to buy materials yourself.
It may be tempting to assign the task to your regular landscapers or someone you know, but this type of green roofing is not something you should gamble with. Rather than risk it, it will serve you better to invest adequate resources towards finding the right people to do the job.
