Green Roof Construction: UK Types, Costs & How Long They Last

Green roof materials and systems

A Green Roof System creates a sustainable ecological environment and is a great way of using space.

The anatomy of a green roof will consist of filter membranes, drainage layers, waterproof layers, roofing membrane support, a vapour control layer, structural roof support and vegetation.

The cost of this system, believe it or not, is not as expensive as other roofing systems available.

However, we are unable to provide you here with a fast and immediate quote, we would first need to know about the desired size of your green roof construction (is it just for a garden shed or entire roof?), and the current roofing system you have in place.

From here, once we have all these details we will be able to provide you with an accurate, affordable quote.


  • Our system can be fitted on top of Single Ply or Felt, having a green roof will protect the single-ply or felt and will last longer.
  • It creates a natural habitat for wildlife.
  • During the winter a Green Roof keeps the heat in and can reduce heating bills by 10%
  • Reduce the Carbon Footprint
  • Improving air quality
  • To save you watering it yourself we can set up a sprinkler and timer to water the Green Roof Daily.
  • There is a range of trims and cobbles in different colours we can supply and fit.
  • There are various types of Green Roof systems and blankets available

Please call your local office to find out more.
