Historic Roofing Part 2

Article borrowed from the National Parks Service https://www.nps.gov/tps/how-to-preserve/briefs/4-roofing.htm Part 2 of an article about historic roofing: Failures of Support Systems Once the condition of the roofing material has been determined, the related features and support systems should be examined on the exterior and on the interior of the roof. The gutters and downspouts need periodic cleaning and maintenance since a variety of debris fill them, causing water to back up and seep under roofing units.

But no matter how decorative the patterning or how compelling the form, the roof is a highly vulnerable element of a shelter that will inevitably fail. A poor roof will permit the accelerated deterioration of historic building...
