Calgary Roofing Companies Can Install Green Flat Roofing And Solar Roofing

With the proliferation of eco-friendly or environmentally-conscious initiatives worldwide, many Calgary homeowners and business owners have started to consider how they can contribute to these global undertakings at the local level. One such area for reflection as well as activity has been the installation of solar or green flat roofing in their homes and businesses.

Calgary roofing companies have been engaged to install green flat roofing primarily for commercial properties, while these same roofing contractors have been installing solar panels for both residential and commercial clients.

In relation to green flat roofing, the fundamental concept usually includes a vegetative cover planted over an impervious or waterproof membrane. There are a few variations or iterations of this theme that can be assessed and compared in your consultations with respect to:

  • Overall depth
  • Visual appeal
  • Types of plants/vegetation
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Installation costs

More specifically, the common choices for green flat roofing include:

Extensive Green Roofs

  • Depth – 3 to 5 inches
  • Vegetation – primarily mosses and herbs
  • Maintenance – low
  • Cost – low

Intensive Green Roofs

  • Depth – 5 to 7 inches
  • Vegetation – some perennials, ornamental grasses, herbs, small shrubs
  • Maintenance – moderate
  • Cost – moderate

Semi-intensive Green Roofs

  • Depth – 7 to 24 inches
  • Vegetation – perennials, shrubs and trees, lawns, putting greens
  • Maintenance – high
  • Cost – high

Turning the discussion over to solar roofing, roofing companies in Calgary can facilitate this option on any flat or sloped surface, either residential or commercial, preferably with a southern exposure. Within this sector, your contractor can install:

Solar panels

  • To produce clean and renewable energy using the sun’s rays/radiation
  • To reduce overall energy costs (hydro, heating)
  • To fulfill electrical/electronic needs without actually using electricity

Thermal panels

  • To produce hot water for the home, office, or swimming pool
  • To reduce energy costs (less natural gas for heating purposes)
