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…
