One of the pieces of the ridge was actually marked with the date it was installed. Pat from Drury Designs snapped a picture and saved the board for us to keep. It is a pretty neat piece of history from our home.
Instead of installing a new metal roof, we opted to have shingles installed. This way it would more closely match the existing roof on the main part of the house. Since a portion of the porch roof wraps around the turret, conventional shingles were not a good fit. With Pat's advice, we choose a line of shingles that provided a more textured look and would allow the roofer to cut the shingles to lay properly along the roof's radius.
