I am searching for living gable roof best practices or materials for steeper sloped roofs.

Brian Fitzgerald | Posted in Green Building Techniques on

I am looking for green or living roofs techniques for residential housing with steeper slopes of 4:12 to 6:12. I am aware of what is available for commercial buildings, however most systems are designed for 2:12 slopes or less. I am looking for best practices or products that incorpernate a steeper slope application. I am building in the midwest,climate zone 5.
