    Default Need expert in old antique roofs

    To all your antique roofing experts

    [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif'] [/FONT][FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']I took these photos this weekend in a tour of older homes in south Alabama. Some of these homes were from the 1800's and some the early 1900's and a lot had ancient roof coverings. I am specifically interested in the “diamond” pattern roof shingles shown on some of the homes. My question is, “what is the material are the dianmond pattern shingle is made of”? At one time I assumed these were slat however I no longer think these are slate. I suspect many of the roofs are 75 years old thereabouts. Can anyone tell me the material these shingles are made of, assuming they might be 1925 vintage?[/FONT]

    [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']Also, one another house you will see some metal shingles. I assume these are tin shingles. Can anyone confirm if the metal is tin or tin coated ?[/FONT]

    Being as there are no photos, just your description, I would suspect tern coated steel.
