FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Mack Kirk Roofing can offer you roofing systems that brings nature back to urban areas and makes use of underutilized space on buildings. This method is called Green Roofing and although it is a little bit more expensive, the return on investment and benefits are remarkable.
 
A Green Roof system is a specialty service not offered by all companies. Roofing technicians working on these types of jobs must be trained to provide quality products that coincide with each client’s personal vision while maintaining the highest standards of workmanship and materials.
 
Green Roofing is about more than gardens and trees; it is about reinventing the concept of a roof and increasing the quality of life for all. Aside from being attractive and good for the environment, green roofs also increase a building’s value, take advantage of the recent trend in “green” commerce and can also be highlighted as a special feature for commercial buildings.
 
A typical Green Roof is covered with a growing medium. Vegetation is then planted over a waterproof membrane. The system also may include roof barriers and drainage and irrigation systems as well.
 
The numerous benefits of Green Roofs include:
Extra outdoor living space
Increased return on investment
A place to grow flowers and produce
A reduction in heating costs due to added mass and thermal resistance
A natural cooling effect due to evaporation
Increased roof life span
Storm weather run-off reduction
A natural source of oxygen
A source of beauty
