Hi All. I have a few questions that I want to ask y'all about living roof, as this will be my very first attempt. I want to install them here, in East Kalimantan. For those of you who don't know, I am right on the equator, so the humidity level is around 70 - 90 and the temperature will be around 30 degrees celsius. There are only few threads on tropical living roof in the internet, so I hope I can find further answers here.

First, the material. As I browsed through the net, these are the materials that are commonly used by most people (from bottom up):
1) Roof structure/ledge: steel structures are mostly recommended
2) Water proof slab: concrete (viva) board or treated plywood
3) Geomembrane
4) Insulation foam
5) Drainage layer
7) Soil mix/planting media

Any input on these? Any more efficient method?

-------

Second, rain water catchment. Rain water catchment is a must-install feature for our homes. How can we integrate living roof as an effective rain water collector? Slopes? Drainage system and construction? Best vegetation options?

-------

Third, any info or statistics on how living roof will affect humidity levels and temperature?

------

That's all folks. I hope some of you (maybe all) can answer this newbie's questions.

Have a nice day!  

Thank you
