Some of the most notable advantages that come with installing a green roof include:
• rainwater is absorbed
• insulation is provided
• wildlife habitat is created
• carbon emissions are reduced
• heat island effect decreases
Intensive roofs are green roofs designed in a way that makes them apt for supporting various types of plants. They are heavier and need more maintenance. On the flip side, extensive roofs are lighter, and they can support only a thin layer of vegetation.
Other common names for green roofs are eco-roofs, oikosteges, vegetated roofs and living roofs. Roofs that use a type of green technology such as a cool roof, a roof with solar thermal collectors or photovoltaic modules can also be considered as green roofs.
