This is one type of concrete tile that does not require nails for fastening but rather a lattice of wood strips on heavy underlayment, upon which is it hung. The tile interlocks with those around it forming a durable, fire-proof barrier to the elements. This tile was manufactured from proprietary molds during the 1920's-1940's at our site at 740 West Short Street.

Copper roofing is the one of the most durable, low-maintenance types of roofing available. On very low slopes, copper pans are locked and soldered to form a network of reinforcing joints, its anchor points being within the locks and covered. As the angle of the slope increases above 9.5 degrees, double-locked, vertical, standing seams are employed in which the anchor points are interior to the seams and fully covered. No externals fasteners are used. Copper is one of the most versatile and durable construction materials used. It has been estimated that 85% of the copper smelted since the Early Bronze Age, 5300 years ago, is in use today.

Wood Shingles

Wood shingles are primarily made from western red cedar although cypress is sometimes used. The shingles are typically sawn or resawn and are smooth on both sides, averaging 1/4" thick. Wood shingles should never be applied directly over asphalt felt, except at the eaves of the roof. Wood shingles are typically 16" or 18" long, The exposure of wood shingles depends on the slope of the roof, as lower slopes would require a maximum of 4" exposure and steeper slopes would require maximum 5" exposure.
