And although it may seem like they are a relatively recent trend, for a long time, metal roofs have actually been around. For decades, individuals have used metal roofs for the long-life expectancy and durability that they offer. Today, there is no other construction material used that can match metal roofing.A green roof (GR) provides a foundation on top of a structure in which different plant life may develop. In Germany, recent GR advances have been developed.You can get additional information at Biloxi roofing contractors.

Around 10 percent of Germany’s buildings are now green. The covering is constructed in layers, with each layer fulfilling a different function. The base layer sits on the top of the substrate and provides the building with a waterproof seal. This may come in the form of roofing with a metal tray or a synthetic membrane. In order to enable water to evacuate the roof, a drainage layer is added, followed by a filter and root protection layer. The root protection membrane prevents the waterproof membrane from being punctured by plant growth and causing leaks. The final layer is the growing medium in which the growth of the plant is entrenched. It is possible to divide green or ‘living roofs’ into three major categories. Extensive, intensive and diverse in organic terms.

To promote the development of mosses, herbs and grasses, extensive GR, (also referred to as Eco roofing) is used. With a depth of between 60-200mm, the growing medium is comparatively shallow. The weight of the medium for the plant is 60-150 kg per square metre. Eco roofing is used where little or no human foot traffic is available and roofing is required for low maintenance. The cheapest one to instal is this type of roofing. Intensive green roofing is being used to build roof gardens and park gardens. The broadest range of planting opportunities is offered by this category of roofing. It is possible to use shrubs, flowers, and even trees. The depth of the medium for growth is between 150-400 mm. This pushes the weight up to 180-500kg per square metre and requires a significant structure to support it.
