Some of us consider a roof to be a mere addition to a home. However, others consider it to be the essential element of the home, which it really is. While olden day architectural plans allowed for roofs to follow a standard plan, the more recent plans allow for more innovative roofing designs to lend a non-traditional look to the entire home.
Green Roofs have lately made their appearance and presence felt in urban areas. These roofs are the roofs covered with plants and/or flowers. The vegetation is allowed to grow in a manner such that it creates a layer over the roof that acts as a thermal insulator. The Green Roofs maintain the temperature inside the house. Due to this, the house remains cool in summers and warm in winters. According to the pros at Feller Roofing, this can actually “help homeowners save money.”
