Easy to Install Green Roofing Systems

Living roof surfaces provide a huge range of benefits and offer an effective use of space, while helping to sustain and replace lost habitats from ever increasing urban expansion. They can be installed on a number of different roof surfaces and can be planted with herbs, sedums or naturally growing wildflowers from the local area.

Allbase green roofing modules are the ideal way to install a cost-effective lightweight green roof without using complicated layers of build-up. Simply lay the fully established sedum or wild flower modules onto an Allbase approved roof surface for a satisfying long-term green roof.

Biodiversity and Wildlife

Create a natural habitat for nature to thrive

Green roofs are more biodiverse than traditional roofing materials and will naturally provide benefits for wildlife compared to non-green roofs. Along with traditional sedums our green roofing modules can be supplied with wild flowers and grasses that are indigenous to the projects area, providing better support for the locally arising plants birds and small insects, encouraging a wider spread of species in the area.

Increased Air Quality

Give your roof a breath of fresh air

Plants and green spaces reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and produce oxygen. Plant based living roofs contribute to the reduction of a number of polluting air particles and compounds not only through the plants themselves, but also by deposition in the growing medium.

Energy Conservation

Green roofing can help keep those energy bills down

Depending on the time of year and the amount of water held within the system, green roofing provides greater thermal performance and roof insulation. In Summer time the green roof acts as an insulation barrier, reducing the amount of solar energy kept in the roofs membrane which leads to cooler temperatures beneath the surface. In Winter the root activity, air layers and overall system naturally creates heat, providing an insulation membrane which reduces the heat lost from the building.
