Educational Video Series

Historic Restoration: Preserving a Montana Landmark with Copper Roofing

In this one-hour video case study, we will explore how copper roofing benefited a century old courthouse in Montana. Through a series of interviews with the project team and a building tour, we learn how buildings from the past shape our future, historic preservation challenges, and how teamwork and craftsmanship combine to preserve a culturally significant building.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Discuss how historic preservation projects can promote a healthy community and celebrate our historical legacy
  2. Review the sustainable benefits of using recycled copper for roofing applications
  3. Define craftsmanship and how it applies to roofing restoration projects
  4. Describe the longevity and life cycle of copper roofing compared to other building materials
