Green Living

As consumers continue to learn more and more about green building, architects, designers and builders are starting to incorporate more green features into their new homes.

One of these features are green roofs, which can be installed on residential and commercial buildings, feature landscaping and foliage on the top of the building that often can be used by residents and tenants as a natural space for relaxing and socializing. Green roofs limit water runoff, shield the rooftop from damaging ultraviolet rays and provide extra insulation that minimizes cooling costs and cuts down noise pollution. A green roof can add to the life span of a roof, in some cases doubling the length of time the roof can function.

Thanks to new technology and products, consumers can build their dream home without sacrificing aesthetics
