Ecodaken: Manages water runoff

ADVANTAGES

Efficiency: Smart Investment in Your Roof

A green roof extends the life of your roof significantly. Because a green roof insulates it saves energy. Moreover, it is almost maintenance free and easy to install. Green roofs reduce noise but can also function as sound proof. Subsidies are now available to help you realize a green roof.

Ecological: Install Your Own Green Lung

By the absorbing capacity a green roof absorbs excess water runoffs. A green roof improves air quality and raises oxygen production. It reduces the urban heat island impact in our cities.  Creating an ecolint on unprecedented altitude, it encourages biodiversity.

Aesthetically: Pleasing the Eye

Green rooftops are inviting and pleasing for the eye. The greening of our urban environment from above banishes the monotonous mass of the black roof landscapes and contributes to our general wellbeing and health.

Reduces flooding

Our climate is changing rapidly, challenging us to come up with concrete and quick solutions. Increased and more hard-hitting rainfalls produce stormwater that overloads the drainage infrastructure and wastewater treatment systems. Projections are that we will witness even more intense rainfall in the future. Greenroofs easily reduce the amount of water after heavy rainfall either by absorbing excess water or by natural evaporation. Because greenroofs allow drainage of water runoffs into sewers at a slower pace, they help reduce pressure on urban drainage systems and enable groundwater to be replenished. In urban areas, roofs represent 40-50% of the impermeable surfaces; greenroofs can reduce flooding of the built environment by 60%. Greenroofs are excellent tools for responsible and sustainable watermanagement around the house and your neighborhood. Little wonder cities and waterborads are starting to invest in greenroof technology.
