On this week’s post, we’d like to continue with the interesting topic of green roofs! In our latest post, we discussed what a green roof is and today we’d like to discuss companies that work with green roofs. In particular, we’d like to discuss a certain organization by the name of GreenRoofs Canada.
What Is Green Roofs Canada?

The term “green roof” refers to a layer on a per-existing roof of a building which includes high quality water-proofing, root repellent system, drainage system, and of course, plants. Green roofs are Eco-friendly, aesthetically pleasing and also relaxing to the tenants!
