    dosent the roof break down faster than a regular roof? and wouldent it be better to add solar panels to roofs? lower temperatures are ok, but isint energy production better than saving energy? and even if they slow down run off does that equal less runoff? over time? and does that runoff that didnt run off in time begin to rot the roof? im not being negative, it just seems like 2 steps to the left when 1 step to the right would be even better. ( in my opinion)

    tnx 4 d vid present. that is so very cool. i rather like the roofs with robust like designs with tall grass or some shrubs or tall trees rather than some small patches of green. it is more cool so that the establishment can really blend with the environment. not only with the roofs also with the walls i.e. vertical gardens.

    i am a roofer in the UK, we have a lot of water in the UK, and a lot of Green roofs.
    now my problem is that if there is a problem with the roof ie some dumb air condition firm has drilled a hole in the roof or there is any damage from structural movement or for what ever reason,
    it costs a absolute fortune to remove one of these roofs, and the amount of trucks used to remove the old roofs kills of the advantage of having a green roof.
    so if they go wrong don't expect a $100 dollar repair.

    hey there,
    I noticed you used a great exploded diagram of the layers and materials used in green roof construction, could you please let me know where you found it, could really use it for my college project!
