Installing a Green Roof System
Before the installation of your green roof, a PRO-TECH project manager inspects the roof’s structure, surface, condition, and drainage to determine the precise waterproofing materials that will be used. Once the materials are on site our waterproofing experts prepare your roof by cleaning and repairing it’s surface and then applying layers of waterproofing membranes, barriers, and sealers. These ultra-strong barriers help protect the roof from dirt and root growth. Finally, layers of soil are added to aid in overall drainage and plant nourishment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a green roof?
Green roofs, also called “living roofs” and “eco-roofs” are thin layers of living plants that are installed on top of conventional roofs. When they are designed properly, they are stable, living ecosystems that replicate many of the processes found in nature.
What are the major advantages to installing a green roof?
The greatest benefits of installing a green roof is the reduction in energy costs, the sound insulation, and the doubling of your roof’s life.
Can a pitched roof support a green roof system?
Yes, a green roof can be installed on almost any roof pitch, however the price of the green roof system will increase with the pitch of the roof simply because more materials are needed in order to support the vegetation, and these roofs may require more initial maintenance while the plants establish themselves.
