The environmental impact of a new four-bedroom home in the heart of Dartmoor has been reduced with three distinctive green roofs constructed using Rhepanol membranes and accessories
The complex and varied roof planes are very different from the large, predominantly flat areas of most green-roofed office blocks and were key to creating the ground-hugging lines of the house.
The roof comprises natural, local meadow grass and site-excavated topsoil sitting on a drainage layer and root barrier, supported by a Rhepanol hg membrane laid over a softwood boarded roof. Stainless steel gravel-stop profiles are adhered to the membrane along the perimeter.
