Gravel on the roof

Gravel on the roof

Why should we put gravel on the roof? That’s a question I asked myself when I visited our new headquarter in Langenselbold yesterday to make some pictures. After speaking with the construction manager I know more about the reasons.

The gravel offers several advantages:

  • slowdown of rain drainage during heavy rainfall
  • improving insulation
  • protection and stabilization of the polymer bitumen membranes on the roof

Therefore it’s a good solution for the new Elementar headquarter! I hope you like the impressions; I had to climb up the scaffold for the pictures…
