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 Superstore

You can even purchase entire, pre-grown green roofs. From 15 – 100 metres square in size. So whether you’re a DIY bunny or a ‘sort it all out for me please’ roofer, Roofing Superstore have you covered.
