An “extensive” green roof, on the other hand, is a thinner
green roof, on the other hand, is a thinner, lighter, version that looks more similar to a standard roof. It can be sloped or flat. Often it will be planted with sedum (stonecrop). Many "semi-intensive" green roofs are home to an array of plant species, including native grasses and flowers.

Whose roofing material is on the house? Do you know if it was Englert?
low-slope roofing systems, so we don't have a specific breakdown. Also, the difference in local labor markets, and the age of the house would make the numbers inaccurate. For a field seamed, painted steel roof you might expect $6 to $10 per square foot or more depending on complexity, gutters, downspouts
actually no roof valleys in this project. Gutters catch the water at all locations and transfer it to the ground through downspouts. There are low slope roofs between the primary volumes of the house, which also drain to gutters.
