In a few years, don’t be surprised if green roofs replace black tar roofs altogether. More and more businesses all over North America are realizing that they can do more for their communities, their image and their eco-friendliness if they turn their back on hundred-year-old roofing techniques in favor of something a new.
That something new we are referring to is green roofs. Rather than lay a bunch of black shingles that attract heat and are prone to wear and tear in the elements, covering your roof in beautiful, local plant life is a great way to make use of this all too often neglected space.
Green roofs last longer than conventional roofs, they reduce energy costs with natural insulation, create peaceful retreats for people and animal and absorb storm water, minimizing the strain placed on the complex and expensive drainage systems that your commercial building relies on to stave off hazardous water damage.
If you are ready to make the switch to a roofing system that is better equipped to handle today’s volatile and ever-changing climate, then contact JD Coatings today.

Green Roof Construction
Green roof construction is rather simple when you let the professionals at JD Coatings take the reins. We have extensive experience building green roofs for local businesses and other commercial properties. When you choose JD Coatings as your green roof provider, we’ll first sit down with you to discuss your goals for this project. From there, we’ll assess how much weight your roof can withstand.
Once that’s done, we will settle on the type of green roof system that best suits your structure and your needs. There are three basic types of green roofs and they are:
Types of Green Roofs
Extensive green roofs: Lightweight, hardy ground covers and are easy to remove and maintain.
Intensive green roofs: Deeper system build-up and can include beautifully designed rooftop gardens.
Semi-intensive green roofs: Requires moderate maintenance and occasional irrigation.
Ultimately, each type of green roof has its own unique set of pros and cons which is why it’s important to consult with JD Coatings’s green roof experts so that we can make sure the green roof being installed matches your goals and is sustainable with your building’s design.

Green Roof Drainage
Many business owners are deterred from getting their roofs converted to green because they are unsure of how water will be diverted away from their property. When you choose JD Coatings to build and install your green roof, we can outfit it with a system designed uniquely to make sure storm water is being used by the plants and discarded when it is of no use to them.
