We are Dedicated to Providing the Best Value in Green Roofing
Our Mission at LiveRoof® is to provide the best functioning, most beautiful, longest lived, and most easily maintained green roof on the market. Our system is unique in design and function. It is intended to last indefinitely, grow healthy-sustainable plants, complement the architecture, and function in concert with all roofing systems. Equally important as our system design, is our professionalism.
Our organization is composed of dedicated professionals with substantial experience in horticulture, construction, roofing, and design-and we are pleased to share our experiences as to what works, what doesn’t work, and which plants to use to optimize the aesthetic and functional qualities of your project.
The LiveRoof® system produces a superior return-on-investment, and is designed to be enduring and headache-free for the property owner (browse testimonials).
Our system is proven and our plants, which are selected, developed, and tested specifically for rooftop cultivation, are remarkably effective. LiveRoof is endorsed and recommended by hundreds of satisfied owners. And, when properly cared for, an acre-size LiveRoof can be maintained in as little as 10 man-hours per year. LiveRoof is present after the sale as well, providing ongoing support with our biweekly maintenance newsletter, and willingness to advise and consult. We protect the owner’s investment, our brand, and your design and reputation.
Ultimately, our mission is for the owner to be elated with the value of their LiveRoof system.
The LiveRoof network is dedicated to using sound green-roofing principles including proper interface with the waterproofing system, soil and water considerations, and specific plant options for various soil depths, climates and rooftop microclimates.
LiveRoof have successfully completed over 1000 projects throughout North America ( browse our project showcase). Collectively, over 3 million square feet have been installed, and best practice information is shared among all LiveRoof Licenced Growers. This means that each and every project benefits from this knowledge, as well as 500+ years of collective horticultural experience.
Inexpensive Maintenance and Free Ongoing Support
Because LiveRoof is mature and “like a carpet,” there is no costly establishment period. And, when the LiveRoof maintenance protocol is followed, maintenance is inexpensive and easy.
LiveRoof is committed to the ongoing success of every LiveRoof installation and provides a free twice-monthly maintenance reminder emails. This useful resource guides the maintenance provider through seasonal maintenance events and covers current topics of interest.
LiveRoof’s unique plant material allows for optimal creative expression.
The LiveRoof Deep and Maxx Systems allow for planting of grasses and perennials which can greatly increase biodiversity of invertebrate and bird life.
Even a few small islands of the LiveRoof Deep or Maxx System interspersed among expanses of the LiveRoof Standard System (4.25” of soil), can enhance biodiversity and provide a unique aesthetic quality.
In addition to LiveRoof LLC’s 20 year module warranty, most LiveRoof Growers offer an extendable one year plant warranty. And, the LiveRoof system is compatible with waterproofing system warranties of major waterproofing manufacturers. In some cases, full system single source warranties are offered by certain membrane manufacturers.
Most importantly, LiveRoof will always try to convey to you what it is that you should know, rather than what you want to hear. LiveRoof green roofs are extremely low maintenance, but no green roof requires “no maintenance.” Therefore, all warranties are subject to proper care through the consistent execution of the LiveRoof Maintenance Protocol. This is easy, and we are pleased to instruct you at your location.
