The New Roof?

Roofers are pulling down the old wood & aluminum roof. Are they replacing it with a shiny new aluminum roof?


The new metal layer serves as "decking," much like the wood used to do. The old wood is quite rotten. The nails that held the old aluminum shingles could easily slide out of the rotten wood. That is why so many shingles fall to the ground after any particularly windy storm.

A new copper roof will eventually go over the aluminum. For now, Holy Family Cathedral will have the shiniest spires in downtown Tulsa.
