Our Green Roof Turns Red
October 22, 2019
Our green roof is ablaze with fall foliage.
The sedum planted on our roof turns red in the fall.
Sedum is a hardy drought-resistant succulent plant with water storing leaves.
Benefits of a Green Roof
- Reduces carbon footprint
- Releases oxygen
- Reflects less heat
- Mitigates storm water runoff
- Keeps the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter
- Helps keep energy costs down
- Creates a habitat for birds and insects
That Looks Heavy!
It is. A green roof weighs significantly more than a traditional membrane roof assembly.
However, the structure on our building has been sized to support that added weight.
