The Vieux CarrČ Commission in New Orleans, the Nation's second oldest historic preservation district, held a telephone conference Jan. 6th with roofing and historic buildings specialist from around the country. We discussed how to fit new roofing products, such as plastic "slate" into their preservation guidelines as they are adapted to meet the post-Katrina recovery efforts.

Lary Hesdorffer, director of the commission, and Alice Krishnan, have asked me to post a summary comments from the participants here at Historic HomeWorks this coming week. Watch for updates to the Slate Imitators article at:
