What is a green roof?
Where are green roofs located in NYC?
As of 2016, there were 60 acres of green roofs in all five boroughs of NYC. Green roofs are found on residential, commercial, city, state, and institutional buildings, including universities and major facilities like the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. While this may sound like a lot, green roofs account for less than a tenth of a percent of the city’s roughly one million rooftops, which add up to about 40,000 acres of underutilized space.
Are green roofs important to urban environments?
How much does a green roof cost and are there financing options?
Before installing a green roof, consider the initial construction investment, maintenance cost, return on investment, and financing options including grants and tax incentives provided by NYC and other entities.
Can I design and install a green roof myself?
When designing a green roof, it is important to consider the environment, intent, and building requirements. The information below can help you get started, but it is not intended to be a comprehensive design guide. It is strongly advised to hire a professional design-build consultant to guide you through the design process, assist with procuring funding and permits, and safely install and maintain your green roof.
