What is an Eco Roof?

Roofing that is environmentally friendly, well insulated and long lasting could be described as eco roofing. Often commercial buildings will use materials like vinyl and single ply roofing to make a building more efficient. Eco roofing is all about maximising efficiency and minimising bills.

Eco roofing will often be flat so that they can be useful as well. This allows rooflights to be fitted and solar panels to be positioned on the roof, making it a practical space that will benefit the building. Lots of eco-friendly roofs use rooflights, as these can help reduce energy bills by making a building lighter and warmer.

Some people are now using green roofs, which are becoming a popular trend in the UK. They use plants and grasses on top of the roof to make a building blend in with its environment and make it more friendly for wildlife. For the most eco-friendly roof possible, choose a green roof.
