a roof with wow fac­tor, noth­ing beats a “green” one. Green roofs are cov­ered in plants (with other lay­ers un­der­neath), in­stead of tra­di­tional roof cov­er­ings.

They have lots of benefits, in­clud­ing ab­sorb­ing rain­wa­ter, en­cour­ag­ing wildlife, and re­duc­ing pol­lu­tion, sound trans­fer and heat­ing and cool­ing costs. Green roofs can last around 50 years (both flat and slop­ing roofs are suit­able), but in­stal­la­tion costs are high.
