A recent Roofing Magazine article featured a Durham, North Carolina green home belonging to Alison Trott. The home is notable for its extensive green and sustainable roof features.
For a relatively modest 3,400 sq footprint, the house has many different types of roof designs, including a standing seam metal roof on a high gable, a standing seam metal roof that becomes a metal wall, a built up roof with floating deck and a glass railing system. Then, there is a full green roof over one wing of the house.
That green roof, from Xero Flor America (a Durham company and client of my Firm), was laid down over a hot-mop coal tar pitch roof by Asheville company Living Roof Inc. Architect for the project was Tina Govan / Somos Design of Raleigh, together with CUBE design + research of Chapel Hill. Check out the full article in Roofing Magazine’s April 2018 issue.

The idea is quite great. It will be good if we implement the idea for our roofs. This will help us out to have a Eco-friendly house.
