World Green Roofing Day: Celebrating Sustainability

June 7, 2024

Yesterday was World Green Roof Day, a day to celebrate sustainability and green technology. At Patriot Roofing, we’re excited to be able to bring this roofing technology to Salt Lake City. Green roofing is more than just a token gesture or a nod towards doing something about climate change. It’s a tangible way to help the environment that also improves our cities and makes our buildings more sustainable. Green roofs can save property owners money on operating costs and create attractive spaces in unexpected places.

 

Green roofing is an attractive and cost-effective way to make the buildings of Salt Lake City more sustainable.

 

Improving the Atmosphere

The more living plants we can introduce into our immediate environments, the better. In a city, there is more air pollution from vehicles and less greenery because there isn’t space for it. By adding greenery to our roofs, we can freshen the air while keeping existing buildings and structures where they are. No need for costly demolition, which comes with its own environmental difficulties.

 

Lowering Cooling Costs

Did you know that having a green roof makes it easier to control the climate inside your building? Traditional commercial roofing materials absorb a lot of heat from the sun, heating the building and thus requiring more energy to keep cool. The plants on a green roof absorb the sunlight and use it for photosynthesis so that energy does not get converted into heat.

 

Creating Green Spaces

We all want our cities to be attractive places to live and work, and creating green spaces can greatly improve their aesthetics. Green roofs can double as rooftop gardens, giving city residents and workers convenient and comfortable places to enjoy nature without venturing far from their homes or offices. Spending time in an attractive space also improves a person’s overall mood, making a city a more pleasant place to live and work.
