A green roof is a flat or low-pitched roof covered with vegetation. This plant-based solution is trendy in Quebec, because it makes it possible to welcome Spring in style. This is an attractive alternative to conventional blankets. What is more, it is ecological and contributes to the fight against pollution.

The green roof in Quebec

A green roof is distinguished from a patio garden by its compatibility with structures with a slope of less than 20 °. In addition to its aesthetic role, this type of roof provides insulation and waterproofing for a residential, commercial or industrial building.

The green roof is characterized by its type of plantation, which comes in three variations, including:

  • An intensive planting: its substrate is deep and it finds its place on a robust structure. The roof is suitable for growing several plants, namely trees, flowers and vegetables;
  • A semi-intensive plantation: it is characterized by a lighter substrate. Flowers and herbs are the possible crops on the blanket;
  • Extensive planting: its substrate is the least light. Its capacity to support plants is low, hence its affordable price.

Maintaining a green roof in Laval

Maintaining a green roof is cumbersome, unlike an asphalt shingle roof. The operation must be carried out regularly and reported to the insurer.

The craftsman mainly works in the following two ways to maintain the blanket:

  • Intensive planting: the technician sets up and maintains an irrigation system, while the owner frequently waters the vegetation;
  • Extensive planting: the craftsman carries out regular weeding and repairs the waterproofing membrane if necessary.

The advantages of installing a green roof

Opting for this roof is interesting if you are looking for a roof offering excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. These two criteria are essential for daily comfort and to reduce energy bills.

The original structure of a vegetal you makes a building authentic, whether residential or institutional. Investing in this type of structure is an ecological approach, essential to fight against pollution. Note that it also helps regulate rainwater.

The possible drawbacks of a green roof

The choice to adopt a green roof is often blocked by two reasons, notably its price and its maintenance. The cost of the structure is estimated at four or even five times that of a conventional roof.

Regular maintenance is an important criterion for a green roof, to save it from damage. Do not hesitate to ask our technicians at Toiture Couvreur Laval to inspect the structure to check its condition and take the necessary measures if necessary.

Just after the big storm that took place a month ago, we went online and filled the specific form that we have found on this company’s website. This was on a Saturday afternoon. The next day the manager called us and visited our house to evaluate the situation with the roof. The roof suffered grave damages, a condition that couldn’t go unfixed for many days since everyone feared the next heavy rain. The manager provided us with a reasonable quote and the next day they started working on our roof with professionalism and extra care.

The reason we called your company was because we desired a makeover of our house and our roof. We also wanted to improve the insulation in our house. Your company suggested installing a glass wool mat and a HPV underlay system, a system that was installed in addition to the structure that was already there. Two years have passed since then and the insulation works greatly keeping our house warmer and cooler. If you want to make a long-term investment or you simply face issues with your roof, do not hesitate to contact them.

We couldn’t be happier with the work performed in our roof last June. The interior and exterior of the roof along with the finishing touches are perfect and very qualitative. Also, the insulation installed gives to our house a sense of warmth and comfort that we did not have before. Overall, we are very grateful for everything this roofing company did on our roof and for its polite, experienced and professional crew. We will recommend it to anyone we know.

I received a quote from this specific company regarding a replacement on a roof. This concerned a property in the suburbs that I wanted to rent. The company completed a precise investigation and estimate within the next 2 business days. Every part of the team worked very professionally and helpfully throughout the entire process. The team manager offered me many solutions and advice and I chose the one that best fitted my budget and my needs. The result from then on is exquisite and of the utmost quality.

We recently bought a new house and we couldn’t be more happy and anxious to start enjoying it. But we had an issue: the roofing was outdated and needed to be renovated in its entirety. This specific company came highly recommended and this was the reason behind choosing it to assist us with replacing and fixing our roofing. Not only did they assist us but they offered to place a specific insulation system allowing us to spend 50% less in our yearly electricity and heating bills. Definitely a must!

I am a man of the same profession (a bricklayer) and trust me when I say that I have never seen such a professional and hard-working roofing company. The reason I hired them was to apply a waterproofing insulation in my terrace. The end-result is very well and after severe and heavy rains, not a single issue occurred. The tightness is excellent and everything works and fits perfectly. I will definitely count on this company again in the future if I ever need any work done on my roof.

Great professionals. Ratio quality-price that no one else can beat. We completely recommend them and we are so happy that our terrace roof got fixed. In addition to that, they provided waterproofing and flooring services in our attic. They employed a 10 people team in our house, everyone a serious and professional individual. The result is of the utmost quality and very clean. Work started when agreed upon and finished the same. The finishing touches are great and we are very happy. If we ever need any other repairs, we will definitely use them again without hesitation.
