Greater Toronto Area Green Roof Experts
First and foremost when installing a Green Roof you need to make sure you have a strong and durable membrane underneath. Single ply membranes such as rubber or liquid simply are not enough to keep plant roots at bay. At Detail Roofing, we specialize in the installation of modified bituminous sheet (S.B.S) membranes ensuring your green roofing project is done properly from the start.
The Commercial Roofing Industry is experiencing a “Green” Movement and since its installation in 2009, the Green Roof Bylaw passed in Toronto has put our city in the forefront of proactively “Green” cities in North America. Green Roofs or Living Roofs are becoming very popular for many reasons, most notably for the potential of substantial cost savings and their positive environmental impact.
From cost savings on heating and cooling to the potential of urban agriculture and offsetting CO2 emissions, the current and potential benefits of Green roofs is constantly being uncovered. Growing mediums on the roof have helped increase the biodiversity of urban areas, and are continually stimulating the growth of agriculture within our city as demonstrated by the Crescent Town Community Health Center and Social Service Hub.
The City of Toronto offers incentives for certain green and cool roof projects on commercial, institutional and industrial buildings. For more information on the program and to see if your upcoming project qualifies, click here.
