Roof Garden

For more than 40 years, Carlisle’s roofing products have set the standard for durability in a variety of applications. With over 10 billion feet of roofing materials sold, Carlisle continues to lead the single-ply industry with a constant stream of innovative new products.

With the introduction of Roof Garden Systems, Carlisle is able to provide building owners, architects and applicators several options when choosing a roof garden system. 

Carlisle’s Roof Garden Advantage 
Roof gardens are multifaceted systems that take the roof system far beyond just a waterproofing system. The Roof Garden System offers many advantages with some of the more important benefits outlined below. 

Storm Water Management 
Green roofs help alleviate storm water runoff through retention and detention of the rainfall from roofs. This benefit can cut costs associated with required municipal on-site storm water retention.
  Air and Water Purification 
Roof gardens help to purify the air by converting CO2 into oxygen, helping to reduce greenhouse gases. The roof garden soil structure helps to purify the water through filtration and can be designed to provide a method for neutralizing acid rain. 

Provides Sound Insulation 
The growth media, plants and layers of trapped air in a green roof system serve as excellent sound insulators. Tests have shown that green roofs can reduce indoor noise pollution caused by outdoor contributors. 

Extends Roof Life 
Roof gardens can protect roof membranes from ultraviolet radiation, extreme temperature fluctuations and puncture or other physical damage. Minimization of such exposure can improve the long term performance of the roofing system.
  Adds Value Aesthetics 
Green roofs can provide the urban environment with visually pleasing vistas and rooftop gardens. In urban environments, Roof gardens also add value by converting space into areas usable for recreation by the occupants. In such locations, the scarcity of real estate makes the addition of a roof garden for such recreation a competitive alternative. 


Carlisle’s Roof Garden Systems incorporate a variety of waterproofing options with a full line of accessories to provide high performance vegetative systems. 

Reduces Urban Heat Island Effects 
Heat islands can occur in large cities where much of the vegetation has been removed and replaced with roads and structures. In such urban areas, studies indicate that weather patterns can be altered by the presence of developed space. Roads and building rooftops absorb a significant amount of heat during the day which, in turn, is radiated back into the atmosphere, causing further warming. Roof gardens help insulate and shade buildings, and the plants on green roofs transpire, thereby cooling the atmosphere around them.
