Transform your Home with a GrufeKit Green Roof
Have you completed the interiors of your house and looking for a new project?
One way to make your home stand out even more is to add a GrufeKit green roof!
If you have a strong enough roof to support a green roof, then this is the ideal project to make your home even more beautiful and to add something unique!
We have gone into detail about all the reasons a green roof is a perfect feature for transforming your home.
1. Aesthetically beautiful
Our GrufeKit green roof GrufeTiles will arrive at your home already fully established. This means that your roof will start off being green and luscious…there is no waiting around for it to grow for your roof to look amazing!
You can have a choice between a sedum roof or a sedum and wildflower roof. A sedum roof will be green all year round, giving you an aesthetically beautiful roof in all seasons. Sedum and wildflower green roofs are slightly different. The sedum part is the same as before, it will stay green all year round. The wildflower part of this will burst into beautiful colours in the spring and summer, giving you an amazing array of colours on your roof, but will die back in the autumn and winter.
Having a green roof will bring more life to your home with the rich greenery all year round, making those winter months slightly brighter, and it increases the habitats available to birds, bees, butterflies and insects.
Green roofs look good in any location but are particularly great at brightening up an urban area. If you live in a city and have a suitable roof for a green roof, then this is a fantastic way to bring some greenery and some life into your home and the area.
2. Increase the value of your home
Studies have found that having plants around a building can increase real estate values by up to 20% (Green Over Grey).
Increasing the value of your home by adding a Grufekit green roof sounds like a win to us!
With the real estate market being extremely competitive, a green roof can make your home stand out to potential buyers.
Not only does a green roof make a unique design feature for your home, but it has many environmental benefits as well. It’s impact on biodiversity is one factor that makes a green roof an amazing feature, it can massively increase the habitats available to animals and insects. It can also have an impact of air quality, if adopted on a larger scale, as the plants can help purify the air and absorb polluting particles.
3. Temperature Regulation
Another economic benefit to having a GrufeKit green roof is that they can help regulate temperature, meaning you may end up spending less on heating in the winter or air conditioning in the summer. With the rise in energy costs, this can be a perfect long-term solution to help keep these costs down in your household!
As our green roof modules retain rainwater, they have a cooling effect. The plants absorb the sun’s rays keeping your home cooler in the summer. In the winter the plants keep your home warmer by preventing snow and ice from building up on the waterproof membrane.
