Green Roofing

Today’s environmental considerations encourage constructing environmentally friendly buildings that provide sustainable, long-term design. Owners, architects, local governments, and the general public alike are prioritizing sustainable, green roofing systems.

As defined by the NRCA, a green roof system is a roof area of plantings or landscaping installed above a waterproofed substrate at any building level. Installed correctly, green roofs are attractive energy-saving installations that also extend the life expectancy of your roofing system.

There are multiple components that constitute a green roof system, including thermal insulation, drainage composites, aeration layers, protection courses, and overburdens of various growth media types and plantings.

Silktown Roofing’s commitment to continuing education and certifications qualify us as a premier applicator with thorough understanding of not only the application of the green roof system, but the functionality of each component as it relates to the individual installation.

We work with growers of various planting materials and producers of engineered mediums to ensure your green roof thrives in the locale of the actual installation.

Our status as a master approved contractor by most major waterproofing/roofing manufacturers and NRCA certification as a SpecRight contractor makes Silktown Roofing your single source contractor for a sustainable green roof installation.

Solar Photovoltaic Roofing

Solar electricity provides clean and green energy, protects against rising utility costs, and reduces your carbon footprint. 

Unfortunately, many building owners install photovoltaic panels on their buildings without considering the impact to the roof. Many roof manufacturers now require that existing roofs be upgraded or enhanced prior to a photovoltaic installation. Failure to comply with these requirements or performing the work with non-certified installers can void your roof warranty and increase the potential of premature roof failure–a serious problem once a roof is covered with panels.

We work with our clients to ensure that the most critical component of their building’s envelope is properly protected. 

Whether a complete turnkey system, or just the installation of the panels, Silktown Roofing works in conjunction with the roofing manufacturer to protect the integrity of the roofing system, as well as its warranty.

Let Silktown show you how to participate in the green revolution without sacrificing your roof!
