When it comes to green building, there are a lot of myths out there that often dissuade people from investing in it. For example, there are more than a few green roof myths out there. However, they are just that – myths. Green roofing is actually quite beneficial. The following are a few green roofing myths to avoid:

  • Green roofs only work for green buildings – Your home doesn’t have to be completely green for a green roof to be effective. In fact, a green roof can be the only green feature your home has and it will still provide you with a ton of environmental benefits.
  • Green roofs cause structural issues – Your roof isn’t going to be more prone to leaks if it’s a green roof. In fact, green roofs often have longer lifespans since they add a layer of protection to your waterproof membrane.
  • Green roofs are too expensive – It doesn’t cost as much as you think, and the benefits are worth the cost – including the fact that some green roofs can last twice as long as normal roofs.
