Roof top pavers

A misbegotten edge ballast...(?)

More than a few flat roofs have blown off, and "edge scrubbing" is a fairly common phenomenon; maybe someone thought it would help. Depending on the age, material, and process, some of the earlier single ply membranes had issues with staying connected to the building.

Earlier this week, I saw the same thing done (but not as neatly or completely) to the building next to my hotel in Atlantic City. It looks like they simply swept the gravel ballast back and dropped the pavers in place. I'm guessing that it was hurriedly done last October in preparation for Hurricane Sandy.
