LiveRoof®, LLC, the horticultural experts in the green roof industry, announced the introduction of RoofStone™, roof pavers for the LiveRoof® Hybrid Green Roof System. The LiveRoof system is the most technologically advanced and horticulturally refined green roof solution. RoofStone is an accessory for walkways and patios integrated into LiveRoof installations.
“There is a growing demand for walkways and patios as green roof amenities. So architects, green roof designers and contractors asked if we could develop pavers as an accessory for the LiveRoof system,” said Dave MacKenzie, horticulturalist and president of LiveRoof, LLC. “We engineered RoofStone to function as integrated component in LiveRoof applications.”
RoofStone pavers measure one foot wide x two feet long x four inches tall to match the dimensions of LiveRoof Standard modules and six inches tall for LiveRoof Deep modules. RoofStone pavers feature built-in bases with water channels, so no separate pedestal system is required. In addition, RoofStone pavers fit right up against LiveRoof modules, so no special edging is required. The bases also include convenient handgrips. LiveRoof manufactures the RoofStone base with 100 percent recycled, post-industrial polypropylene.
RoofStone is available in six versatile colors: Sage, Light Reflective, Mocha, Charcoal, Beach Sand, and Red Brick. The RoofStone surface is concrete with recycled content varying by color. The top edges of the pavers are beveled to prevent chipping and form a water-conducting groove between the pavers.
RoofStone pavers are available from members of LiveRoof’s national network of licensed growers. The product carries a ten-year limited warranty.
