Green Roofing Solutions

At the forefront of green roofing, then and now

Siplast was a pioneer in vegetated green roofing in the 1970s, leading the way with Teranap. Since then, Siplast has been helping our partners serve their communities with green roof solutions that include all the components required for a successful vegetated application — from waterproofing to engineered soil to plants. With both SBS-modified bitumen and liquid-applied waterproofing options, our green roof assemblies can be specified to include landscape options from extensive (requiring minimal maintenance) to intensive (requiring more maintenance), depending on your project needs. As architects and planners design with an ever-closer eye on beneficial environmental and community impact, Siplast is here to help them deliver.
