What is a green roof?

A green roof, also known as a vegetated roof, garden roof, living roof, or eco-roof, is a multi-layered roof system that is installed above a watertight man-made structure.



Our Small Structures are constructed with top-quality building materials and provide the opportunity to own an environmentally-friendly and functional structure with a living rooftop. These attractive structures are a unique addition to any residential, commercial or public space. Have an idea not shown here? We offer custom design and build services to meet your needs.
