We are experts in providing sustainable, energy-efficient and eco-friendly green roofs, similarly known as sedum roofs, eco-roofs and grass roofs. With growing weather concerns and the cost of repairs sky-rocketing, green roofs give an evergreen, self-generating and weather-resistant answer sure to protect your home. Flat Roof Experts are known throughout Leeds, Bradford and the Yorkshire area as a trusted high-quality flat roofing solutions company.
From covering extensions and log stores to garden studios and offices, Green Roofs have a variety of uses. They help to moderate outside temperature changes and adjust your home’s accordingly, making it warmer in winter and cooler in the summer. This lowers your energy bills.
Our Green Roofs are made from sedum plants, which we source locally from Ilkley. Sedum plants are great at taking in carbon dioxide, removing the nasty pollutants and releasing the remaining oxygen back into the air. They also reduce surface runoff during those rainy days, easing pressure on drainage and sewage systems.
There are a huge number of advantages of using a Green Roof, including:
• Because of their durability, Green Roofs are low maintenance, requiring a check-up just once a year.
• Sedum plants not only add beauty to your house but give insects, birds and other wildlife a place to call home.
• Extends the longevity of your original roof due to protection from rainwater, UV rays and snow.
• Reduces the effects of loud noise by providing a sound barrier for up to 18 decibels.
For the best protection, consider installing our EPDM rubber roofing first, providing an additional waterproof layer that will greatly benefit your Green Roof.

A Green Roof - or living roof - is a deck on which a habitat for vegetation and wildlife is grown. It's essentially a planted rooftop that has a vegetative layer on top of the standard rooftop. There are different types of Green Roofs, with different uses and different styles. Here at Flat Roof Experts we specialise in extensive Green Roofing using sedum plants locally sourced from Ilkley.
Green Roofs are attractive, natural and pretty, but they also serve a deeper use than just improving the aesthetics of a rooftop. Green Roofs give you a chance to provide a habitat for wildlife and plant species, helping to compensate for what was destroyed during the building's construction. Green Roofs are an eco-friendly roofing solution that encourage biodiversity and sustainability, and help to improve our eco-footprint for years to come.
Our extensive Green Roofing uses sedum plants to help reduce water runoff and insulate your building to the changing weather. Sedum plants are excellent at recycling carbon dioxide, helping to clear the air and release oxygen back into the surrounding area. They also provide another layer to your roof, helping to keep everything inside at a steady temperature and conserving energy. Our Green Roofing is a great roofing solution for those concerned about the health of the environment and conserving the natural wildlife around them.
We like to keep on top of the trends here at Flat Roof Experts. The fact is, Green Roofs have been increasing in popularity for a while now, and we don't see their implementation slowing down any time soon. We think that before long, Green Roofing is going to be seen all over the place, particularly in urban areas. Now is a great time to jump on board and secure your own Green Roofing for the future.
Green Roofs saw increased popularity in Germany in the 20th century, and the trend has begun to spread across Europe and the United States. In cities, Green Roofing is sought for the benefit of reducing air pollution in densely populated areas. Green Roofs help to improve the quality of life in urban environments by creating garden resorts for both residents and wildlife.
Green Roofing is also well known for helping to moderate urban heat, sometimes known as the island effect. Anyone who lives in a town or city is aware of the increased heat caused by heat absorbent materials like asphalt and concrete, causing urban areas to be warmer than rural areas. Green Roofing helps to cool this effect by absorbing heat and releasing cooler oxygen back into the atmosphere. And this cooling effect is something that benefits a building of any size in any area.
Yearly sales figures currently top £28 million in the UK, and we only expect this number to grow. Germany is still far ahead, with a Green Roof stock of over 86 million square metres in 2014, but the rest of the world is catching up. Green Roofing is the future, for sustainability, energy efficiency, and lowering costs while providing a habitat and beautiful roofing solution. Invest in your future today by installing your own eco-friendly green roofing!
