Who We Are
We are a team of design, construction and horticulture professionals dedicated to transforming unused roof space into beautiful gardens. These gardens, while pleasing to the eye, have many benefits for both building owners and the community. Vegetated roofs extend the life of the waterproofing membrane, reduce heat gain, provide usable recreation space, manage storm water on site, reduce heat island effect and create habitat for pollinators. Let us help you be part of a solution.
Green Roof Works Inc.
Sustainable solutions. One roof at a time.
