We need extra quilts in winter to keep warm, but apparently buildings need them too.
A set of dramatic drone images have emerged showing over 200 quilts being placed on the rooftop of a newly built structure in east China.
The colourful cotton quilts cover an area of 2,000 square metres (22,000 square feet) and are supposed to prevent the building from 'freezing' in cold weather, the workers told local reporters.
It's said that freshly poured cement might not be dried out completely in cold weather, and it could cause frost damage to the building.
Workers used heavy boards to secure the quilts and prevent them being blown away by the wind.
According to China Economic Net, the layer of protection can ensure the strength of the cement in low temperatures, as well as keep the concrete building from being damaged.
The temperatures of Jinan on the day dropped to nine degrees Celsius, which is a record low.
