With the rise and focus on sustainability options in the built environment, many companies are now considering the implementation of green roofing systems. A “green roof” is made up of plants and vegetation, either over part or an entire roof area and can offer many benefits to the building owner.
In addition to beautifying the built environment and turning roofs into usable spaces, “green roofs” can last longer than conventional roofs, help lower energy costs, reduce stormwater runoff, and improve air quality, among other benefits.
Advanced Green Architecture is an award winning green roof design and consulting company and one of the industry’s leading manufacturers of green roofing systems. In March of this year, they were awarded a patent for their green roof system from the USPTO.
