Green roofs reduce the surface temperature of a roof by minimizing heat-absorbing surfaces. As a result, the interior of the building stays cooler and energy costs go down.
A TectaGreen roof retains 60-90% of storm water, allowing it to evaporate rather than drain into a retention pond and prevent flooding. It can result in financial incentives and reduced local storm water fees.
Because TectaGreen conforms to the rigorous Green Building Rating System standards created by the U.S. Green Building Council, there are inherent savings in a TectaGreen roof, including Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for tax benefits.
Green roofs have been popular across Europe since the 1980s because of state grants and municipal planning policies. Countries such as Germany now benefit from over 10 million square meters of green roof space.
