At Amherst Roofing and Sheet Metal Ltd., we are committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship. Our green roofing solutions are designed not only to improve the aesthetics of your building but also to enhance its energy efficiency and environmental footprint.

Benefits of Green Roofing

Green roofs offer numerous benefits that extend beyond their visual appeal:

  • Improved Energy Efficiency: Green roofs provide excellent insulation, reducing the need for heating in winter and cooling in summer.
  • Extended Roof Lifespan: By protecting the underlying roofing materials from UV rays and extreme temperatures, green roofs can double the lifespan of a conventional roof.
  • Stormwater Management: Green roofs absorb and retain rainwater, reducing runoff and lowering the risk of flooding.
  • Urban Heat Island Effect Reduction: Vegetation helps lower urban air temperatures, mitigating the heat island effect common in densely built areas.
  • Ecological Benefits: Green roofs create habitats for wildlife and contribute to biodiversity in urban environments.

Types of Green Roofs

We offer several types of green roofing systems, each tailored to the needs and goals of our clients:

  • Extensive Green Roofs: Lightweight, low-maintenance options ideal for large areas where accessibility is limited. They are primarily used for their environmental benefits rather than as accessible spaces.
  • Intensive Green Roofs: Thicker, more labor-intensive systems that can support a wider variety of plants, including shrubs and small trees. These roofs are often designed as accessible gardens for recreation and relaxation.
  • Semi-Intensive Green Roofs: Combine features of both extensive and intensive systems, providing a balanced option for buildings looking to incorporate green space without the structural demands of an intensive roof.
