Grants for Green and Cool Roofs
Grants are available to support the installation of green and cool roofs on Toronto homes and buildings.
Green roofs support the growth of vegetation and consists of a waterproofing membrane, drainage layer, organic growing medium (soil), and vegetation. Cool roofs reflect the sun’s rays and reduce heat build-up through a coating applied over an existing roof system, or a new single-ply waterproofing membrane.
Benefits of eco-roofs:
- Save energy
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- Reduce urban heat
- Capture stormwater
- Improve air quality
- Create habitat
