About the Vegetative Garden Roof
- The Vegetative Garden Roof is only one type of Green Roof.
- Reflective Colors on Roofs reduce the temperature of the rooftop during summer heat waves.
- Ballasted Roofs provide mass effect, slow to heat up, slow to cool down along with reflectivity close to the earth's basic color.
- Photovoltaic Electrical and Solar Thermal Panels provide electrical supply and hot water to the building. CRC Contractors work with the electrical and piping contractors to complete the systems.
- Insulated Roofs provide thermal resistance to reduce energy consumption in the building.
What do all these have in common?
- First, a good roof covering must be in place. Cover a roof with 17lbs./sf. of gravel or 3' thick of vegetative soil. Install both without putting holes in the roof. It all sounds easy. Really?
- Rely on a CRC Contractor with the education, expertise and skill to protect the roof while installing these Green Rooftop Additions.
