ABSTRACT
Roof construction with substrate and vegetation layer raises quality parameters of
artificial environment, raises quality parameters of the building and its internal comfort. It also raises qualitative index of the vegetative roof construction in compare with roof construction without substrate and vegetation layer. Vegetation layer on roof construction has an ecological aspect for the entire building that cannot be overlooked. Green roofs are also both architecturally and visually appealing forms of roof construction. It allows creating new volumes, new architectural surfaces that depend on design of the construction and aesthetical possibilities of the vegetative roof. Solving details and sloped vegetative roof structures directly affects reliability of the roof in term of damp proof course and building thermal physics. Construction design of the details and all roof structures intervene applied building physics. With its theoretical and experimental rules it must eliminate ineligible water penetration, but it must respect the request of designed vegetation. This paper deals with vegetative roofs advantages, mentions its mostly ecological contributions and its related roofs design specifics and structure solutions.
