A sloping green roof with a traditional arrangement of roof layers is a solution that differs from a tiled roof, plate, e.t.c. practically only topcoat. From the interior side – under the rafters – a vapor barrier is installed. There is a thermal insulation material between the rafters with a ventilation gap left above it. The rafters are covered with full formwork covered with two layers of heat-welded roofing felt.
