Greentop is the premier designer and installer of green roofs for commercial and residential buildings in Western New York

 

Greentop operates primarily in Western New York, designing and installing ecofriendly green roofs on both residential and commercial buildings. We work with the top growers and nurseries to source our plants. Our growers, like us, are dedicated to innovation and quality and always help provide the right plants for each job.




David Lanfear got started in the green building business in 2001 after finding inspiration in the idea of natural building and strawbale construction. After several years of traveling the country working with the top people in the field of natural construction, he decided to start his own green roof business. His homes have ranged from 900 to 3,000 sq ft and all have achieved the goal of drastically reducing energy consumption compared to average levels.

The first project David worked on was a playhouse in his backyard, followed by a larger and more complex green roof installation on his garage. The garage green roof has been featured on the Buffalo Garden walk for 12 years, drawing thousands of visitors and media attention from both local and national press. Since its founding, Greentop has grown and expanded to large commercial and residential projects, providing both green roofs and amenity spaces.
