Garden Roofing Systems: Benefits and Types

Garden Roofing Systems: Benefits and Types

Garden roofs, or green roofs, improve energy efficiency and add to a building’s curb appeal. They help to add plant life even if you’re in the middle of a big city!

Garden roofs consist of a covering made of plant material that absorbs water. When it rains, the roof captures the water and releases it through evaporation or it’s soaked up by the plants.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (hyperlink: https://www.epa.gov/soakuptherain/soak-rain-green-roofs), Green roofs can also help reduce building energy usage and noise levels while increasing the durability and lifespan of the roof compared to conventional roofs.

They can also reduce rain water runoff while adding valuable functional space for any business owner.  You can even add touches like chairs, tables and other items to make it an outdoor office space.

Green roofs do not absorb as much heat as regular roofs, so they are very energy efficient. During the summer, a green roof protects your home from direct heat from the sun, in the winter, it can reduce heat loss.

Green roofs are being used more frequently in cities where there is not much space for other methods of rainwater management.

Benefits of Garden Roofing Systems:

  • Process airborne toxins and re-oxygenate air
  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Absorb more than 50% of rainfall on the roof
  • Add curb appeal to any building
  • Increase usable space
  • Resist thermal radiation

Roberts McNutt: Emergency Leak Checklist

Posted on: September 20th, 2018 by admin No Comments

Leaks are like thieves in the night. They slowly sneak up and catch you when you least expect it! The only difference is we try to prepare for thieves. We invest in homeowners and business insurance, security systems, and even a dog! But what are you doing to prepare or prevent leaks in your home and business? If you’re not sure where to start in the preparation and prevention process for emergency leaks check out the list below.


If you ever have a major leak the first thing you should do is immediately shut off the water. It is very wise to make a plan and a MAP of exactly where you can shut off the water. This is the MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do in an emergency. Shutting off the water can help prevent further damage. There should be documentation of where the shutoff locations are in the building. Make sure the people who would be in charge of cutting off the water KNOW EXACTLY where to go to do so.


If it’s safe to turn off the POWER, do so as soon as possible to prevent any other unnecessary damage. I think we all know that the combination of water and electricity can be very dangerous, so be very careful when turning off your power. Shut the electrify off at the breaker box if it is safe to do so. Make sure you maintain records of breaker box locations. Make sure you put this information in a convenient location for emergency situations.


Contact a water extraction company and get the water removed as soon as possible. Speed is very important. Starting the drying process as soon as possible is important so mold won’t take hold.  DO NOT USE A REGULAR VACUUM TO REMOVE WATER.


Make sure you take pictures as soon as possible for your insurance and get them submitted in a timely manner. When the water extraction is done you should be able to see the source of the leak.


Waterproofing your building is a major step that can be taken before tragedy hits.  Here at Roberts McNutt, we specialize in keeping the water out! Leak detection is very important in prevention.

Preparing your Commercial Roof for the Winter Months

Posted on: December 15th, 2017 by admin No Comments

When it comes to roofing, it’s very important that you stay on top of your roof’s condition and don’t ignore problems that will end up getting worse. Now that the cold winter months are almost here, you need to be thinking about preparing your commercial roof for the winter. Weather reports are all indicating that this year’s winter is going to be worse than last year’s. The first thing you need to do is an overall inspection. While an inspection is very important, so is your overall safety. With that said, it’s a great idea to leave the inspection to the experts. Here at Roberts McNutt, our roofing experts are trained on what to look for in making sure your commercial roof is ready to take on all that Mother Nature has in store for the winter months.

If your roof is full of leaves, twigs, branches or debris we will make sure to clean it thoroughly. The problem with having a dirty, sloppy roof is that any debris can cause mold, fungus and mildew to grow. This can do a good job of wearing down the membrane and causing a water infiltration problem on the inside of your building. Next, our crew will inspect the gutters and downspouts surrounding your building. Any sign of sagging gutters will be addressed because this signifies that they will not be able to support heavy volumes of water, snow and ice. If your gutters aren’t ready for the winter this is an issue you need to fix as soon as possible. You don’t want to delay because if excess water has nowhere to go it will find its way inside your building. This is a big problem that can easily cost your business thousands of dollars.

Next, our crews will make your roofing insulation is dry. Wet insulation can lead to mold and mildew not to mention the reason why your heating bills are through the roof. Literally. Lastly, our team of professionals will inspect your roof edge. This is your first line of defense against inclement weather. We will make sure all fasteners are correct and in great shape. Inspecting your roof edge is important because if it has signs of damage your building is in danger.

Remember the key to a healthy roof is to not delay any repairs. If you want peace of mind this winter, give us a call here at Roberts McNutt. Since 1978, we have been providing you with the very best roofing Solutions in Little Rock, NWA, Jonesboro and surrounding areas. We can provide you with as many references as you would like and show you why our customers wouldn’t trust anyone else with their roof.

The Differences between Solar PV & Solar Thermal

Posted on: September 20th, 2017 by admin No Comments

The Differences between Solar PV & Solar Thermal

The concept of utilizing solar energy is such a smart way to save you money. After all, the sun is free. Whether at home or at work, solar energy is just a smart alternative to relying solely on the greedy energy companies. Here at Roberts McNutt, we are so much more than a company that excels at keeping the water out for good. We carry two different varieties of solar solutions, solar thermal and solar photovoltaics (PV).

Let’s start with solar photovoltaics (PV) Solar PV actually converts solar energy into DC electricity. It is then inverted into AC electricity. The AC (alternating current) is used to operate many things including lights, televisions, heating and air, etc. Using Solar PV is a win-win for business owners and homeowners because it dramatically cuts down your regular utility costs. It’s also a great way to help the environment.

Solar thermal has many benefits as well. Do not believe anyone who says that solar thermal can only be used to heat water and nothing else. This is simply not true. Solar thermal is also a great way to provide heat as well as cooled air. Thermal heating and cooling will dramatically cut your energy consumption during the hot summer months and the cold winter months. Solar thermal is also very convenient because it can actually store solar heat to use at night or on cloudy or rainy days.

No matter which form of solar works best for you, you can see that solar just makes sense. You can save a great deal of money by relying on something that is free from Mother Nature; the sun. There are also many incentives for using solar including utility credits, tax rebates, etc. Roberts-McNutt is proud to be a leader in solar solutions and we’d love the opportunity to show you how you can start saving today!

Definite Signs that Your Commercial Roof Needs Work

Posted on: June 28th, 2017 by admin No Comments

There are definite signs you need work on your commercial roof. The key is knowing what to look for and not waiting too long! No one wants to have to scramble at the last minute to have their roof fixed when problems occur. After all, you have a business to run and dealing with roofing issues shouldn’t be eating up hours in your day! Indicator number one is all about the moisture. How do you tell if your roof has a moisture problem? If you have visible water stains on your ceilings or you notice that you have an increase of insects or rodents then you most likely have a moisture problem on your roof.

Another pretty obvious sign that you need work on your commercial roof is that you have crazy high energy bills. The bottom line is that your roof may have lost a great deal of its reflectivity which is forcing your thermostat to work extra hard to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. This is an expensive problem that will not get any better unless you invest in your commercial roof.

Another tell-tale sign that you need work done on your commercial roof involves bubbles. To see this sign you need to physically be on top of your roof. If you are not comfortable doing that, call in the pros. In a nut shell, bubbles come from moisture building up under the top layer. The more bubbles, the more work your roof needs. While you or a professional is up on your roof, making sure you have adequate flashing is important. If there are gaps, flashing is missing or dislodged and you need to have work done on your roof as soon as possible.

These are all pretty big signs that you need to have your commercial roof replaced or repaired in a timely manner. Whatever you do, make sure you choose a respected and experienced company for the job. Here at Roberts-McNutt, no other company is more experienced than us. No job is too big, too small, or too complicated. For your convenience, we have set up three convenient locations to serve you including, North Little Rock, Springdale and Jonesboro Arkansas. When it comes to commercial roofing, we do it all including metal roofs, BUR roofing, garden roofs, PVC roofing, etc. Commercial roofing is our specialty and we do it better than anyone else.
