AbstractThe design of a successful roof terrace depends upon the designer's ability to select the most compatible compromises. Surfacing materials, when properly installed, can reduce the range of temperature variation in the waterproof membrane and protect it from solar radiation, physical damage, fire and wind. The longest service life of the surfacing materials will be achieved when their thermal movements have been allowed for and they are kept as dry as possible.
