Norway Green Roofs

A green roof does not mean a green roof as some might think of us, it’s a roof covered with vegetation like a garden.Using vegetation on roofs is not a modern invention, this option is currently a alternative to a less polluted environment.

A smooth surface like a lawn or a green roof tend to absorb noise rather than reflect them as do other materials or construction.Also studies by German professor, Gernot Minke have shown that green roofs can reduce the effects of electromagnetic radiation.

In winter, the soil layer above the membrane roof provides additional insulation. For example, in areas such as Scandinavia homes are well insulated.Regarding the protection against cold wind that can provide a green roof or a facade covered in ivy, this could be a considerable economic value.
