Over the last 20 years, green roofs have been becoming more popular with owners, developers and architects. A green roof can play a vital role in decreasing rain water runoff, which can greatly reduce the amount of sediment that is distributed to our waterways. Not only are green roofs a functional part of the building; they greatly enhance the appearance of a new or renovated building.
ER&M can install a fully functional green roof that includes the drainage layers; drain board, planting, stone ballast and lightweight soil. In some cases, ER&M is contracted to only install the green roof soil media and plants after the roofing contractor installs the waterproofing and drainage layers.
