StormCap pre vegetated roof systemStudents and teachers of Mastery Cramer Hill Elementary have a pleasing view of vegetated rooftop that changes appearance with the seasons.

Workers unroll the sedum blanket onto the growing medium.

A team of workers from Ganter Contractors install the nearly 3000 square feet of vegetated roof in less than one day.

One of the main reasons the green roof was included in the design of the building was to reduce the stormwater runoff from the roof. The vegetated roof also helps increase the lifespan of the roofing membrane and keeps the building, and surrounding area, cooler on hot days.

Needled Mineral Hydro BlanketThis school’s vegetated system features the lightweight Needled Mineral Hydro Blanket which acts as a water reservoir to support plant health, and offers reliable stormwater management over the lifespan of the vegetated roof.

The sedum blanket is delivered with 85% foliar coverage and provides an instant green cover. It consists of 10-12 species of sedum specially selected for their heat/drought tolerance and year-round visual interests.  The sedum blanket helps reduce water evaporation, soil erosion and weed growth. The green roof has no permanent irrigation.

Research shows improved behavior and academic achievement in students who have a view of natural landscapes from their classroom.
