Breaktime, Fine Homebuilding‘s forum-based community, is a great source of information for our readers. It’s also a valuable resource for the editorial team. I recently received, via Breaktime, a request for articles on copper roofing. In doing a little research, I learned two things. First, copper isn’t a topic foreign to Fine Homebuilding, as you can see from a small selection of the articles below. I know these articles are not all about completely copper-covered roofs, which is what the reader is really looking for. But, that leads me to the point that the second thing I learned is that maybe Fine Homebuilding is due for some more content on copper roofing. The overall point is that, as I’m sure you know, Fine Homebuilding is your magazine. Let the editors know what you want. One place you can do that is right on Breaktime.
