Green Roofs Exeter, Devon & South West England
SPS Roofing Ltd provide green roofs Exeter, Devon and across South West England for both domestic and commercial buildings. Our team of roofers have over 25 years experience in the industry and hold all the training, qualifications and certifications (e.g. SMAS, Constructionline Gold, CSCS, CITB, RICS and NFRC) to work on all green roofing projects and transformations. Green roofs are becoming increasingly popular throughout the United Kingdom due to aesthetic and environmental benefits created pre and post installation, such as reducing the carbon footprint and improving energy performance ratings.
Green roofs are suitable for most types of new builds or refurbishment projects and can easily be adapted to suit the requirements, size and type of roof. The pitch of the roof and load bearing capacity of the structural deck will determine the type of green roofing system that is most suitable for your property. We understand that trying to choose what type of green roof to use can be a tricky task, so please do feel more than welcome to contact our Exeter based team in Devon should you wish to discuss what would work best for you.
There are several green roof vegetation options to choose between, these include:
- Vegetation Blankets – green roof vegetation blankets offer an instant carpet of plant coverage that is extremely lightweight and include a mixture of plant species to enhance the diversity in foliage and flowering. The pre-cultivated plants are grown onto a geo-textile carrier fleece with UV resistant nylon to give a supporting foundation to encourage growth, and thus stability to vegetation.
- Plug Plants – this option in planting delivers an increased variety of vegetation which can be pre-selected to blend in with the property location, rooftop conditions for growth, colour scheme or the ‘green’ action plan specified. Young individual plants or ‘plug plants’ are planted by hand into the substrate to grow over the next couple of growing seasons, offering a good level of coverage.
- Seed Mixes – this is typically a hand or machine selection of seed mix that is applied to the substrate finish for a more natural growth pattern throughout future growing seasons. It mainly uses herbaceous species to provide a combination of floral colour blooming at various times throughout the year. It works great for singular planting schemes or combined with plug plants.
- Maintenance Requirements – all green roof vegetation products require a certain level of maintenance to help the plants establish into their new surroundings, keeping them healthy and strong for changing seasons. After installation the green roofing system will just need the typical ‘flower’ or ‘garden’ maintenance one can expect from encouraging health vegetation growth.
Biodiverse green roofs are designed to be lightweight and offer a low maintenance vegetation landscape, which is wind and frost resistant. They are not intended for open access or leisure uses but rather for their ecological and aesthetic advantages. A biodiverse roof delivers additional benefits including a natural living habitat with an emphasis on native plant species. Our roofing company offer green roofs Exeter, Devon, Somerset, Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Dorset and across surrounding locations near South West England.
