Description

Henry Company offers green roofRoof system in which living plants are maintained in a growing medium using a membrane and drainage system. Green roofs can reduce storm-water runoff, moderate temperatures in and around the building (by providing insulation and reducing heat island effect), as well as provide a habitat for wildlife and recreational space for humans. When properly constructed, green roofs can increase roof durability because the roof assembly’s air and water barriers are buffered from temperature fluctuations and UV exposure. systems ranging from extensive systems, for low-growing vegetation, to intensive systems, for deeper soil and larger plants and trees. These systems typically include a hot rubberized asphalt waterproof roofing layer, a roofing protection layer, a root blocking layer, a rigid polyisocyanurate insulation layer, a drain board and water retention layer, growing medium, and plants. The rubber waterproofing layer contains 48% recycled content (11% post-consumer and 37% pre-consumer), and the drain board and water retention layer, which aerates the soil while keeping it appropriately moist and draining overflow, is available with 57%–68% recycled content. Henry offers 10-, 15-, or 20-year single-source warranties covering the entire green roof assembly.
