My house is a 1928 Craftsman style brick home with a 'hard to get info on' metal roof. It was built with a tin? or similar metal tiled arrangement, maybe 5-9 individual designed pieces, that looks like clay tile. While still water proof, this light weight tile material is weathered and has been stepped on too often. I have scoured for examples of this 1850-1950 work and have come up dry. If anyone knows preparation to restore, un-dent the tiles or an older tin or metal smith manuals on this great old roofing style I would appreciate anyone with experience to comment.
I have tried to post, insert or upload a picture in several formats but it fails either inserting or pasting from my computer.
Maybe someone can clue me in on this old craft, old journeyman manuals or in my case someone who has encountered repair, priming or restoration of this metal. I am not looking to replace it with something else as restoration of this house is my intention.
