A classic film showing the old-world metal roofing process

This is one of the first films I point people to, in order to show the difference between the american style of work and the traditional european style of copper or metal roofing. This is of special interest to those in charge of replacing historic copper roofing in america. If the goal is to re-create the look, and have durable successful results; it is best to avoid any american precedents and look for the preservation guidelines used by the expert guilds in europe for a baseline on how to conduct preservation work.
