Green Roofs have gotten a Bad Reputation with Developers

Green roofs have gotten a bad reputation with developers.  Yet we’re finding that on urban sites, the only way to meet storm water management requirements is through the use of a cistern, underground storm water storage or a green roof or blue roof.

Implementing a green roof addresses green roof by-law’s that are being brought into force in many municipalities.  And in areas where there is no green roof by-law, municipal reviewers are often so excited to see a green roof that they may be more lenient on other requirements.
