Jody Reho works on a tile roof in the Old Town neighborhood. Traditional roof tiles made of cement or stone are no longer manufactured. Replacement tiles are extremely expensive when they are located.
A roof finial awaits replacement at the home of Larry Groeger in the Old Town neighborhood. Many neighborhood home owners have requested permission from the Historic Landmark Commission to change from traditional roofs to composition shingle roofs (background).
