We're trying something new! Historic preservation professionals have been spending more time at home than ever before during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of us have turned our attention to rehabilitating our own homes, and the Preservation at Home series was formed as a way to take a look at our field from a slightly different perspective. This personal aspect of this series will hopefully be a welcome addition to APTNE's offerings.

Though Historic Preservation Architect, Mark Anderson, has maintained the original Pennsylvania slate on the roof of his house for the past 20 years, the time has finally come to replace it using mostly traditional methods and detailing. There’s no better way to understanding historic materials and detailing than to work with them yourself. For the past two years, Mark has been replacing the roof himself, in his spare time, along with a roofing contractor friend. The replacement is approximately 50% complete. Mark will discuss the process of obtaining new Pennsylvania and Vermont slate and copper, and the process of building new copper yankee gutters. Please join us for this up close and personal tour of Mark’s experience of resetting a historic roof to last another century.
