Roofmeadow-Certified Contractors: The Ultimate Green Roof Credential

The Roofmeadow-Certified Contractor Program attracts the most experienced, high performing and motivated green roof installers in the country. Roofmeadow provides Roofmeadow-Certified Contractors with bid support, pre-construction support and installation training while supplying long-term performance warranties, maintenance management and project promotion. Roofmeadow is not a design/build firm; we are a Design|Manage|Warrant firm that teams with contractors to build high performance landscapes on structure.  We do not manufacture or sell green roof materials; Roofmeadow-Certified Contractors utilize Roofmeadow-Certified Components that are backed by material testing and over 17 years of experience.  Roofmeadow warrants all Roofmeadow-Certified Components and all workmanship that we oversee. We work with Roofmeadow-Certified Contractors throughout the lifecycle of a green roof – from lead generation to maintenance management.
