 . Which System is Right for You?

There are a lot of design parameters that need to be addressed when developing a program for a greenroof facility. First and foremost you'll need to determine what the roof's primary use will be and what the structural limitations are for the building. You will also need to know what performance goals you are trying to achieve and what maintenance maybe associated with each system. In addition, it is important to have a good understanding of how the roof will be accessed and local building code requirements that may effect the design of the roof. The pitch and slope of the roof, as well as the type of plantings, and depth of soil will also determine what products and components will be selected for the project. Ultimately, your budget will drive the form and function of the project and it is important to get a preliminary cost estimate up front from a qualified contractor before too much money is invested in design fees.
