LiveRoof Global, LLC Announces Industry-First 50 Year Module Warranty for the LiveRoof® Hybrid Green Roof System
Engineered to Last Fifty Years or Longer, LiveRoof
Guarantees Module for a Half-Century
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. and PHILADELPHIA, Penn. — LiveRoof Global LLC, the horticultural experts in the green roof industry, announced a 50 year module warranty for the LiveRoof® Hybrid Green Roof System. The LiveRoof system is the most technologically advanced and horticulturally refined green roof solution designed for long term performance.
“Our customers select materials designed to last—to sustain—and with this new warranty, we are demonstrating our commitment to products that stand the test of time,” said Dave MacKenzie, horticulturalist and president of LiveRoof Global, LLC.
“The LiveRoof modules are subterranean, protected from the elements below a layer of plants and soil. This allows for a better looking green roof system, without any grid lines, and for better function,” said Ron Strasko, owner of Creek Hill Nursery, Leola, Penn. Creek Hill Nursery (which specializes in herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses and deciduous woody plants) is a licensed distributor in the LiveRoof Global network of regional growers and horticultural experts.
“The system design allows us to grow the modules under the care of our professional horticultural staff, so that the customer has a thriving, fully mature green roof upon installation,” said Strasko. LiveRoof modules have inserts which raise the soil above the edge of the modules during cultivation. Once they are nested together on the rooftop, these “Soil Elevators” are removed for a meadow-like, continuous layer of growing media and plants.
“Just like nature, the LiveRoof system allows for the sharing, not the compartmentalization, of important life-supporting nutrients, as well as moisture and beneficial organisms,” said MacKenzie.
LiveRoof Global manufactures the patented LiveRoof module in the United States using 100 percent recycled material in four sizes ranging from 2.5” to 8” of soil depth. LiveRoof Modules are available from members of LiveRoof’s global network of certified regional growers.
LiveRoof is exhibiting at GreenBuild, the US Green Building Council conference and expo, November 20-21, 2013 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. LiveRoof will be at booth #1051.
