Commercial building owners and architects can now benefit from the proven low-slope roofing systems offered by GAF combined with LiveRoof’s expertise in green roofing.
“GAF’s relationship with LiveRoof® is an example of our ability to offer the latest roofing systems and technologies to our contractors,” said Christian Hartwig, GAF Product Manager. “We’re proud to offer not only the best in low-slope roofing systems, but the best in green roofing.”
LiveRoof® experts will provide on-the-job training and certification to GAF Master and Master Select® Contractors in green roof installation. Once an order is placed, it is custom planted at a local growing location and delivered to the jobsite fully grown. This program gives GAF factory-certified contractors the ability to expand their skill set and qualify for more jobs.
“Green roofs offer building owners a vast number of environment and economic benefits,” said Dave MacKenzie, President, LiveRoof Global, LLC “They naturally cool buildings, are beautiful, retain stormwater, sequester carbon, reduce noise, and protect roof membranes.” He adds that, “Studies show views of and interactions with nature reduce patient recovery times, employee absenteeism and turnover, yield higher rents and lower vacancies, and even enhance performance with increased memory retention, focus, and productivity.”
