Live Roof Systems

Bring modules with fully established plants inside the jobsite and simply set them in place on the rooftop

Why LiveRoof®?

Eliminate the need to start with a brown roof and farm it for years, hoping and waiting for it to become a green roof. GAF is partnering with LiveRoof® to combine the proven performance of EverGuard® TPO and PVC membranes with the LiveRoof® patented, proven hybrid green roof system.


Each module arrives to the jobsite fully grown and is simply set in place on the rooftop.

During installation, the unique, patent-pending Soil Elevator™ is easily removed to allow for a seamless fit, which provides the look of a "built-in" system without the extensive, ongoing costs of maturation.

Step One:

The Licensed Grower inserts the LiveRoof® Soil Elevator™ into the module
