Should I Install A Rooftop Garden?

With all of the time we’ve spent at home, it’s left a lot of us wanting to try some new projects around the house. Maybe you painted the kitchen cabinets or installed some new fixtures in the bathroom, but have you thought about installing a rooftop garden? Rooftop gardens come with a lot of benefits, but they also provide some challenges, so it’s not a decision to make lightly.

Keep reading for a breakdown of what a rooftop garden could do for your home.

Increase In Property Value

Since a rooftop garden adds more useable square footage to your home, you’ll automatically increase the value of your home. According to independent researchers, the addition of a rooftop or balcony garden can add between 10 to 25 percent more value to your property.

Additionally, depending on where you live, you could be eligible for a tax credit or rebate when you install a rooftop garden!

Better Home Insulation

The addition of a rooftop garden also acts as another layer of insulation for your home. In fact, buildings with rooftop gardens lose 30 percent less heat in the winter and retain more cold air in the middle of summer. A rooftop garden also adds sound insulation! Say goodbye to all of those late-night sirens, car alarms, and honking horns.
