green roof maintenance
Living roof maintenance seems to be shrouded in mystery. Does a green roof need maintaining? How often? How expensive is it? Who’s responsibility is it? These often unanswered questions can result in a desire to move away from having a living roof in the first place.
Maintenance for a living roof needs to be considered from the outset. There is no such thing as a 'no' maintenance roof, green or otherwise. All new commercial buildings are required to have roof and gutter checks twice a year and an extensive green roof can be designed to align with this requirement. The maintenance required will depend on the outcome desired by the client.
