Apex Green Roofs Inc. has had the opportunity to work on some amazing residential green roof projects. These tend to be our favorites because each residential project is unique. Variables particular to location - such as sun and wind exposure, seasonal rainfall, native vegetation, and soil depth determine the most viable plant choice. With 14 years of in-the-field experience building residential green roofs, Apex Green Roofs provides expert guidance in system design and implementation. 

With an average of 4 seasonal visits during the growing season we monitor and cultivate a healthy growth rate. Apex Green Roofs includes 1-2 years of seasonal maintenance as part of the installation contract to ensure that vegetation thrives during the establishment period.
