I was contacted by Henry Mitchel of HKC roofing in Cincinatti to provide some up-training to their roofing crews. They are growing their historical and crat roofing operations and felt it was time to add some traditional seaming knowledge to their toolkit. 5 crew leaders were pulled off their regular duties to spend a week with me on this install. They learned fillet eaves, sweep seams, corner pockets, and ridge intersections.

One week is a bit of a crash course, and they will need some self-study and more intense sessions to “graduate” but they are well on their way to becoming fully fledged seamers!

We decided to go all out, and they kept me there after the crews had returned to their regular duties to perform the first ever pipe-on-seam completed in america. This detail as with all folded roof details have about 1200 years of precedent.
