A solar or green roof -or even better, a combination of both- on top of the roofing membrane greatly contributes to achieving high ratings in sustainability assessment methods such as BREAM and LEED. This, however, calls for a roofing system that can withstand the specific challenges of these type of installations.
EPDM roofing membranes deliver a reliable waterproofing solution that is extremely durable and fully compatible with green, solar and blue roofs. They contribute to achieving both programs’ highest rating levels by presenting many possibilities to build highly engineered roofing systems, each with a different sustainable value.
Firestone Building Products is a strong advocate of green building rating schemes. Its RubberGard EPDM roofing membrane is resilient, lightweight, inert, offers excellent weathering performance, outstanding durability and uses fewer natural resources than other traditional roofing membranes. It also offers a perfect match for green, solar and blue roofs, making it a very sustainable roofing solution.
