The roofing industry needs to embrace environmental responsibilities.

The green roof movement is the future of sustainable and environmentally aware roofing, and RMS will be there every step of the way. Our Operations manager Austin Abraham is now GRP Certified (Green Roof Professional), with the horticultural, engineering and technical knowledge to maintain your Living Roof’s integrity and health.

We also assess the growing conditions of each section, from sunlight to water availability, to determine which vegetation would be suitable, as well as checking any existing irrigation system for functionality.
