ArteZanos is introducing the integration of ornamental horticulture, with use of our light weight growth medium. True Green Roofing can now be achieved using drought resistant sedum and succulents to give your project that vernacular “Green” twist. ArteZanos contribution redefines “Green Roofing” by introducing an optimal light weight vegetative option designed exclusively for sloped residential and commercial applications. The light weight innovative design, removes common roadblocks such as structural reinforcement and costly installation techniques in an effort to encourage the viability of sustainable residential green roof practices.
Lightweight Green Roof
Topping the roof with vegetation has a myriad of ecological benefits. Our roof design integrates timeless terracotta roof tiles with a stimulating visual array of horticulture creations nestled in-between. Barrel roof tile and sinuous roof tile patterns often accrue organic material in the roof tile troughs giving rise to un-welcome plant life. At ArteZanos we have dedicated our systems to sustain horticulture as an integral part of our design. Vegetative Roofs have demonstrated a decrease in the heat island effects, increase sustainable roof life, and the use of carbon dioxide from the air. The benefits of Vegetative roofing retro-fits on residential and commercial structures can significantly reduce cooling costs and also reduce ambient roof surface temperatures for better photovoltaic efficiency.
