All our flat roof garden buildings are offered with the option of a beautiful, sustainable living green sedum roof. A green sedum roof will give great pleasure to watch as it grows and develops, and is very long lasting when properly cared for. For garden offices or garden studios, to be used throughout the year, a green roof offers excellent insulation properties, reducing the power required for heating and air-conditioning. A green roof also absorbs rainwater and, importantly, attracts beneficial garden wildlife such as butterfiles, ladybirds & bees.
Mr T, from London: "I am delighted with my green roof. As a professional artist it is important that my studio has a stable temperature all year round to prevent damage to my work. The insulation properties have been far better than I imagined".

Designing & Installing your green roof
A green roof must be specified at the design stage of your garden building to enable us to manufacture with the correct pitch and additional strengthening.
Our installation team will take care of the whole project. Fitting is carried out by a 4 person team due to the weight of the materials. Garden buildings with internal canopies will require post supports. (Our green roofs are not suitable for Log Cabins with projected canopies). A waterproof membrane (EPDM) with drainage outlet (ideal for rainwater harvesting) will be fitted. Importance is given to the adhesion of the membrane ensuring it will last as long as the building and provide a safe surface on which to install your green roof, for future maintenance and aftercare work. On top of the waterproof membranes, a blanket of moisture retentive fleece is installed to ensure a steady supply of water to the roots and prevent water run off. Additional blanket is laid over the apex of the roof. On log cabins, timber fascia and bargeboards are fitted to provide an attractive finish.
All pricing is inclusive of VAT and is based upon the standard floor area. Just ask for a quote.
