Also known as a living roof, this is an option that emerged from the desire for more eco-friendly structures, much like solar panel tiles. While organisms like moss, fungi, and other plant life are normally hazardous to the health of a roof, recent innovations have made these roofs a viable option. With professional installation, a protective barrier is placed underneath the organic surface to protect the roof while providing a distinct exterior that looks right at home in nature.
Green roofs can be expensive to install, but they have a beneficial influence on the environment. At the same time, they can save you on energy costs thanks to their insulating properties. Additionally, they tend to be very low maintenance and work best on sloped roofs.
