Lorsque le drainage n'est pas idéal, il peut être sage d'employer un système tel qu'un toit traditionnel, qui permettra l'évaporation de l'humidité superficielle, plutôt qu'une couverture à membrane protégée, qui empêche l'évaporation. Pour une couverture multicouche, les feutres inorganiques sont préférables aux feutres organiques.
