Rooftop Plaza Decks
Beautiful and beneficial, garden rooftop plaza decks and terraces are not only aesthetically pleasing but help increase the life expectancy of your roof, improve stormwater retention, and thermal resistance.
Along with any roof or terrace garden comes the need for Garden Waterproofing—a vital service for protecting buildings against water damage and leaks when installing a garden. Whether you’re creating an oasis in compliance with the Denver Green Roof Initiative or simply want to add a gorgeous green space to your building, turn to the LEED certified professionals from Douglass Colony.
Roof and terrace gardens lead to lower heating and cooling costs.
The urban heat island effect is greatly reduced in buildings with roof gardens.
Greenery produces oxygen and cleans the air around it.
Roof gardens diminish the need and cost of future re-roofing.
A properly installed roof or terrace garden will minimize stormwater runoff.
Installing a garden provides a livable, life-quality-enhancing environment for both humans and wildlife.
We use Monolithic Membrane 6125 which is bonded directly to the substrate to create a completely seamless watertight foundation.
With reliable, noninvasive electronic leak detection technology, we protect against leaks, and can identify defective areas.
Douglass Colony uses a variety of drainage mediums based on the application and desired results, from standard drain materials to Garden drain materials which aid in water retention and irrigation of plat materials.
Placed above the roof membrane and root barriers, our polystyrene insulation layer is a closed cell, dimensionally stable product with a high r-value.
Douglass Colony builds a variety of overburden rooftop applications including Rooftop Plaza Decks, Modular Trays, and both Intensive and Extensive Garden Assemblies.
