How About a Green Roof?

It's a good thing they have an English version of this site, because I really didn't know what it was about when I clicked the link for couvreur montreal. So I checked out the English version, and now I'm really interested in this green roofing.  I'm not sure it's really appropriate here, but how great for a city.  It turns a roof into additional living space with room for gardening and recreation.  Not only that, but it reduces the effects of greenhouse gases and can double the life of the roofing by providing protection from UV rays and extreme temperature variations.

I really like the idea of being able to take a previously ugly and unused space and turn it into a new green space.  It gives new life to the building and helps to provide a better quality of life for the community.  I know I'd appreciate having a place like this if I had to live in a big city.  I'm used to my green spaces, my yard and my garden!

For more information on green roofing, how it can optimize the potential of a building, and all the many benefits, be sure to check out toiture montreal and take a look at some of the projects they've completed.
