GREEN & VEGETATIVE ROOFS

Environmental and Economic Benefits

Viridian Systems provides a wide range of environmentally preferable roofing systems, products and services that support green building, including: water-based coatings, solvent-free adhesives, vegetative roofing systems, and recycled materials.

These provide a range of environmental and economic benefits without compromising quality:

Security Starts with the Roof… The Foundation Beneath the Growing Medium

At Viridian Systems, we understand the key to a vegetative roof assembly is the principal roof system underlying the growing medium and vegetation. The roof must provide secure waterproof protection for the building asset below and offer a foundation for the growing medium and vegetation in the green roof above. Whether your green roof project involves new construction or installation on an existing building, it is critical the roof system is sound, is appropriate for your unique project considerations and will perform under your specific climate construction.
 

Long-Term Sustainability... The Key for a Safer Tomorrow

Sustainability demands that today’s environmental, economic and social needs are met in ways that will not compromise the well-being of future generations. We embrace sustainability as an attitude and are aware of the paths we are helping to forge and the trails we collectively leave behind. Our sustainable development effort seeks to significantly reduce the negative impact that new and existing buildings have on the environment. Oftentimes, a sound, but aged roof can be repaired rather than replaced — extending its lifecycle, reducing landfill waste, and preserving both tangible and intangible resources. Utilizing environmentally preferable roofing technologies and a restoration approach to roof replacement, Viridian is dedicated to extending the life of existing roofs through effective maintenance and repair.

Specify Our Performance Proven Approach

Viridian Systems can provide specifiers with green technologies that conform to accepted industry standards:

Reusable Metal Systems

Viridian edge metal systems are engineered to ensure long-term service and durability. To reduce the environmental impact resulting from the extraction and processing of new virgin materials, both post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content is utilized without sacrificing product performance. Tested in accordance to Factory Mutual’s Roof Perimeter Flashing Standard, and ANSI / SPRI ES-1 test protocols, Viridian offers edge metal options designed to provide extreme wind uplift resistance. Since the majority of Viridian Systems’ metal products are mechanically attached and snapped into place at the roof edge, they can be removed and reinstalled when the original and future roofs are replaced.
