3 Benefits of Rooftop Turf in Toronto
Artificial grass for rooftops is a surprising and simple element that homeowners can use to revamp lacklustre balconies and terraces. Inherent resilience and easy-to-maintain qualities make synthetic rooftop turf the perfect addition to outdoor spaces in Toronto, especially those that are exposed to the elements. With artificial grass, you can lay the foundation for more design elements, beautiful furniture, decor, and creativity anywhere around your property, even on the roof.
Here are 3 ways artificial grass can benefit your rooftop.
When you're decorating outdoors in Toronto and the surrounding area, the weather is often one of the most influential factors in your decision making. With four annual seasons that bring an extreme range of weather, from heavy snowfall and thunderstorms to high winds, and extreme heat, you'll want to ensure whatever you use outside can withstand these fluctuations.
Synthetic turf from Echoing Green is designed to facilitate water drainage from precipitation, so there is no flooding or pooling of water, even following extensive rainstorms. Well-draining rooftop turf also means that you're safe from the slips and falls of wet surfaces even at high elevations.
During brighter, warmer days, artificial grass is equipped for extended periods of sun exposure. Built with UV protection, you can count on artificial grass to maintain its colour for years: no fading, no running onto other surfaces. UV protection that prevents damage to artificial turf also minimizes overheating from extended exposure to the sun. This allows artificial grass in Toronto to both keep its pristine appearance and comfortable natural grass-like sensation.
Low Maintenance Needs
The minimal maintenance requirements of artificial grass cannot be mentioned enough, especially when you're installing it on your rooftop. If you choose to install something on your roof that requires regular weekly maintenance, you might find yourself travelling up there too frequently. Artificial grass doesn't grow, attract pests, or yellow even in the winter, which means that you don't have to worry about mowing it, spraying it, or watering it day after day. Essentially, your rooftop turf takes care of itself.
Not only does your artificial grass require low care, but it also reduces the amount of maintenance your rooftop needs over time. Because synthetic turf is permeable, it effectively whisks away water from its surface, which could otherwise cause leaks or rotting, while also guarding the roof's surface against sun exposure which is known to cause organic materials like wood to deteriorate.
When you install artificial turf to your roof, the turf in conjunction with underpadding and other installation materials enables simple, cost-effective home insulation. Reflecting heat and sunlight off the rooftop in the summer and retaining heat inside during the winter, synthetic turf enhances home insulation, allowing homeowners to spend less energy on heating and cooling systems, reducing monthly energy bills. The reduced strain on your air conditioning system or heaters also extends their lifespan, further saving you maintenance and replacement costs.
