Green Roofs are technically engineered systems that can convert urban rooftops, the tops of parking structures, and water tanks into beautiful lush gardens and recreation areas.
Light Weight Mesquite Stone reduces dead load, and makes it possible to construct elevated parks, landscapes, and rooftop gardens without excessive structural cost. Green roofs serves several purposes for a building including, absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife, and helps to lower urban air temperatures.
As said before, Green-built Roofs are technically engineered systems. When designing a Roof Top Garden System you must consider the saturated weight of the system. Then determine the Load bearing capacity of the underlying roof deck. You also must use a waterproofing membrane that is resistant to moisture and root penetration.
Green Roofs and Roof Top Gardens are beautiful additions to any structure, and are growing in popularity. Call Carroll’s today for more information.
