Will a green roof cost more because of its structure?


Green roof cost will depend on the type of roof and the amount of weight associated with the type of system designed. A new building can be designed to support this additional weight. For existing buildings, a structural engineer should be consulted to ensure the rooftop is able to support the additional load. In many cases, the lightweight materials used for green roof construction allow for a retrofit on an existing building.
