Green roofs are an effective approach to managing rainwater runoff from rooftops. As a result, they are growing in use in urban areas where space constraints limit the use of other water management practices.
Here in the U.S., the demand for green roofing solutions is growing for homeowners, business owners, and developers. Many major cities have adopted specific ordinances requiring green roofing on new buildings to assist in the battle against climate change.
From San Francisco to Toronto to New York City and several cities in between, green roofs and buildings have grown increasingly popular as one method to tackle environmental concerns such as rising temperature and poor air quality.
