SAFETY

Recover’s first priority is job-site safety. All crew members are OSHA certified and strictly adhere to OSHA’s fall protection standards.

MEMBRANE PROTECTION

Recover encourages the use of low voltage and high voltage vector mapping of waterproof membranes prior to green roof installation, making certain that the roof is leak-proof from day one.

SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES

We prioritize the use of recycled, post-consumer, and local materials throughout the entire construction process.


MAINTAIN

Maintenance services to fit your needs.

Proper maintenance is essential for the vitality of green roof systems. All of our projects come with the option of a low-cost, renewable maintenance contract specifically designed to meet the needs of each individual system.

A typical annual maintenance contract includes the following services:

  • Soil nutrient management: testing, amending, fertilization

  • Weed removal

  • Vegetation replacement

  • Winterization & summerization of irrigation

  • Component inspections: irrigation, waterproof membrane, drains, flashing, edging

We prioritize clear communication with clients and on-site staff to manage goals and functionality of our green roofs. Maintenance contracts can also be issued for pre-existing green roofs that are in need of extra care.

Recover also designs, builds, and maintains rooftop farming systems in the Boston area in collaboration with farmers from Green City Growers, who provide year-around farm management services to our farm projects.
