At Furbish, we help you make our world greener.
Furbish was founded in 2003 by Michael Furbish as a sustainable development company focused on high-performance buildings. In our early years, we offered solar thermal, geothermal, straw-bale, and natural plasters technologies. After several successful projects, Furbish gained wide recognition in the still nascent green roof industry. We steadily expanded operations to install and maintain green roofs throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
Our extensive experience in green roof maintenance has influenced product design, as we have come to realize that most extensive green roofs are too maintenance-intensive. By 2009, after installing and maintaining every green roof system in the market, we committed ourselves to offering a better system — higher stormwater performance, lower maintenance, lighter weights, lower carbon footprints, and better economies. That inspired EcoCline, now a leading green roof system in the mid-Atlantic.
Although we began as an installation and maintenance contractor, we now supply EcoCline to roofers and landscapers to install. Our seasoned installation crew is intimately involved in deployment of new green roofs and other green technologies, often as design-build efforts.
