Insulated Roof above Styro Stone Walls
After concrete pouring into the Styro Stone walls is over, the next stage is construction of a regular RCC roof slab. You have to insulate this as well.
Why should you have an externally insulated roof?
insulation from outside protects not only the roof slab but also the waterproofing layer the roofing elements undergo a daily cycle of contraction-expansion due to the solar heat, causing cracks, which if untreated, damages your structure & leads to unhealthy damp to seep inside your rooms so the insulation layer prevents the 'weathering out' of the roof and adds to the life of your construction, thus, it saves you from the periodic hassles of costly repair work on the roof.
