LiveRoof® System

The LiveRoof® system is designed to ensure the success of your green roof project and do so at the lowest possible total system cost. This takes into account more than just the module purchase cost, but also addresses maturation costs, maintenance costs, and life cycle costs of owning a living roof system. LiveRoof® has created the best value available by working to reduce these costs.

RoofEdge® Aluminum Edge Restraint


Made in North America LiveRoof® RoofEdge® is specially designed to complement the four available sizes of the LiveRoof® System. It is extruded, fabricated and finished in the United States using the highest quality materials and standards.

The ALL NEW LiveRoof® RoofEdge® product line represents second generation green roof edging. The improved RoofEdge® line is the result of lessons learned during our first 1,000+ installations, and collectively represents a new standard for function, aesthetics and integration.

RoofEdge® was designed to be architecturally “pleasing to the eye,” but also with the contractor in mind. Economical and easy to install, the quality of the materials and finishes—whether natural aluminum or bronze or black anodized—are better than ever.

RoofEdge® offers RoofEdge® corners which save time and money, and are far more precise than field-bent corners. An all-aluminum RoofEdge® drain box is also offered, which can help mitigate water log during extreme rain events and is guaranteed to never rust.

The LiveRoof Integrated RoofBlue® Riser is engineered to provide temporary water detention underneath LiveRoof systems.  When used with control flow drains, RoofBlue expands the usefulness of a green roof system as a stormwater management tool:

  • Reduces burden on stormwater systems (may allow for reduced sized drains).
  • Could reduce or eliminate the need for cisterns, underground storage tanks, detention ponds, etc.
  • May reduce stormwater utility charges or qualify for zoning incentives.
  • May allow for overall reduced project cost by combining retention of a green roof and blue roof in a smaller area to meet minimum local stormwater management requirements.

The WindDisc is a simple way to secure LiveRoof modules together to improve wind uplift resistance.  The WindDisc technology allows for any size LiveRoof modules or RoofStone pavers to connect together across a green roof installation.  Please contact us for more information.
