The ease of installation offered by the ANS GrufeKit green roof, gave Paul Griffiths of P&K Roofing Contractors the confidence to recommend it for a residential property in North London. Now, following its successful application, the company is adding green roofs to its service offering.
When green roofs first entered the market, the systems would need irrigation for the first few months, to help plants become established on site and they required specialist skills and training for installation. Most roofing contractors therefore felt this fell outside the realm of their day-to-day work, and would sub contract to a specialist company.
ANS Grufekit is different. The green roof is made up of multiple individual modules, with each module containing everything needed from a water reservoir and drainage layer to the soil and vegetation. The system is far simpler to install and is also lightweight: It only took Paul and his assistant five hours to complete the installation on the extension’s 20msq roof including the stone margin.
Paul Griffiths was so impressed with the ANS GrufeKit system that he is now due to install another one for a different customer. GrufeKit is a four in one system, with each module containing everything needed from a water reservoir and drainage layer to the soil and vegetation.
We got on really well with the ANS GrufeKit green roof system, it was very easy to understand and simple to install. We made more money on the job because we installed the green roof ourselves instead of subcontracting it.
