Construction of green roofs

Green flat roofs, the surfaces of underground garages and car parks, make the environment in our towns healthier, compensating the regression of the natural environment.Constructing greenery roofs is beneficial for both the building and the environment.

It protects the water insulation layer of the roof from extreme temperatures, extending the life of the roof covering. It creates new areas for recreation and movement.

A part of drainage water is used for irrigation, thus reducing the load on sewerage.
The heat reflection from the roof surface is reduced.
Greenery produces oxygen necessary for life.
The whole environment is improved.
The area of dusty surfaces is significantly reduced.
The noise level (traffic, etc.) is reduced.

Pildid / - haljastatud_katus1Based on technological solutions, the roof greenery is categorized into extensive and intensive roof greenery according to the type of vegetation, the structure of the layers, the purposes of use and applicable maintenance procedures.

Extensive roof greenery is a simple and natural solution with diverse and beautiful vegetation integrated into a whole. As a rule, the main emphasis in this case is laid on planting vegetation on unused roof space.

The plants that are used are very adaptable, i.e., they can endure cold and dryness, as well as temporary excess humidity. The supply of water and nutrients normally takes place only via natural channels. Therefore, the vegetation can look very different in different seasons, unlike a well-groomed decorative grass.

Thanks to thin layers and the resulting load distribution, the extensive greenery can be used in almost all modern flat roof structures.
Based on the aforementioned consideration, BÖRNER recommends its Parvita® extensive roof greenery system.
