Early 20th-Century Building Materials: Siding and Roofing
United States Department of Agriculture – Forest Service – Technology & Development Program
Also see our page Historic Roofing: Guide to Online Sources & References for further reading.
This great article is supposed to be available on the US Forest Service website. It’s perfect for further reading about some of the things we talk about on our website, so we linked to it from a couple of our web pages.
We noticed in the fall of 2022 that our links weren’t working anymore. Apparently the Forest Service changed its domain name from “www.fs.fed.us” to “www.fs.usda.gov” and failed to redirect the old web addresses to the new ones.
They also changed a few other things, and now it’s almost impossible to navigate around their website or, specifically, to find the new location of “Early 20th-Century Building Materials: Siding and Roofing”. So we just put it on our website. Someone let us know when the USDA gets their act together, please.
