Sept. 30 presentation explores special problems of older roofs

Owners of older homes may be unfamiliar with some of the problems they may face in trying to maintain their roofs. Potential problems include ice dams; roof staining, moss, and mold; and finding companies that can repair historic materials such as slate, tile and shakes.

On Tuesday, Sept. 30, Jack DuShaw of Titan Roofing and Siding will discuss "Special Problems with Older Roofs.” The program will take place at 7 p.m. at the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Center, 3450 Lee Road, Shaker Heights.

This free presentation, part of Home Repair Resource Center’s HouseMender University series, is open to residents of all communities, and is being held in cooperation with the City of Shaker Heights. Reservations are requested. To reserve a spot, call 216-381-6100, ext. 16 or e-mail
