Mr Waterproofing have worked on large and small green roof and wall projects.
Green Roofs and Green Walls are components of a building that are covered with a soil substrate or growing medium, and then grass, plants or trees, all sitting on top of a waterproofing membrane. They typically include water retention, drainage and irrigation systems.
The waterproofing component of a Green Roof or Wall is the most crucial aspect of the project. If an effective waterproofing membrane is not installed the roof will fail.
Effective Green roofs embrace ecology into a building and give the structure greater harmony with the natural environment, while enhancing the energy efficiency and appearance of the structure. Mr Waterproofing provide green roof solutions tailored to your specific requirements.
An integral part of all green roof solutions is waterproofing membrane specification undertaken at the beginning of the project, together with load bearing considerations, landscaping design and cost factors. The integration of natural elements and living plants into the design means that once construction is completed the waterproofing cannot be accessed and in the event of a breach, typically the entire roof must be removed to make good. Correct waterproofing is essential.
In addition as Green Roofs and Greens Walls are living ecosystems they require proper ventilation and waterproofing to ensure the plants have a healthy fertile environment and are able to be sustained.
So whether you are a Home Owner, Architect, Property Developer, Landscaper or Nurseryman, always make sure you consult with a Green Roofing Expert and ensure that your building is protected with proper waterproofing. Use of Mr Waterproofing WetSuit™ spray applied membrane is fully compliant with all Australian building codes & regulations.
It’s worth noting that Green roofs may appear ‘green’ by design, but they may not always be ‘green’ by construction. Some roof membranes, although effective as a waterproof layer, may be composed of synthetic compounds known to be toxic when manufactured or disposed of, and are harmful to the environment. Mr Waterproofing WetsuitTM waterproofing system is eco-effective in that it is non toxic water-vased and contains no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). Our installation experience also ensures full compliance with OH&S.
