How did we pick the Best Green Roof Companies?
The last two years have incorporated a lot of research into green roofs, including several projects.
But we have included companies that specialise in DIY green roof projects – Roofing Superstore and Roofing Supplies for example – because that’s what we love. But it’s also important to cater for large scale commercial projects.
To account for that we have scoured reviews, projects and the quality of all available products to highlight the best living roof companies around.
Roofing SuperstoreMid-range DIY superstore

If it’s the modular look you’re after, they stock some brilliant wildflower green roof trays alongside some equally brilliant sedum roof trays. These products are primarily Wallbarn – including drainage membranes and living roof filter fleeces.
