Green Roof Installation: What is it and why do we do it?

This type of roof installation is practised by R&D Roofing because it is an innovative style of flat roofing which is pleasing to the eye, and economically efficient.

This is where the roof deck has intentionally grown vegetation or where habitats for wildlife are established. Due to the changing attitudes of the consumer and the increasing awareness of sustainable development to combat climate change, the demand for this has soared over the past ten years.

Further, our green roof installation aims to combat progressive urbanisation and there is extensive amounts of roof space in the UK where this type of roof  installation could be implemented with little to no modification to the roof structure.


  • Reduce storm water run off
  • Increases the life span of the roof
  • Climate change adaption
  • Increases biodiversity
  • Improves air and water quality

To summarise, the main reason why many of our customers have been opting for a green roof installation is the environmental benefits. See our blog here

In this day and age, people have started to adopt a socially responsible strategy to combat global warming. Although it’s not just about that. Our customers want a roof which blends in stylishly and comfortably with the environment, something which offers a beautiful and natural finish. This strategy benefits all; our customers, the environment, habitation and wildlife.
