Roofing contractors (inc Green roofs)

Roofs are a substantial element of a building's structure and so the materials used can have a large effect on its environmental impact. Choosing a roof finish that actively supports the environment is the pinnacle in sustainable construction. ‘Green roofs' are an environmental and ecological solution for the future, and are roof structures that are covered with plants, whether as a garden finish or for visual aesthetics with grasses or sedums. In either case, a green roof controls humidity, filters dust and air-borne pollutants, manages storm water and therefore reduces localised flooding, actively converts carbon dioxide into oxygen, improves the acoustic and thermal insulation of the building as well as creating a natural habitat and increasing biodiversity.

Alternatively, selecting natural materials where possible like slate or wood. Look for recycled goods like tiles made from old tyres or source roofing goods from reclamation yards.
