You may remember the year 1959, or perhaps you’ve been influenced by some of what went on that year: Hawaii became a state, we were introduced to the first astronauts, Barbie™, and COBOL. It would be 4 years before we would learn to use a push-button telephone, 5 years before the Beatles came to America, and 10 years before Neal and Buzz would walk on the moon on a fateful July 21st, with 650 million viewers holding their breath in awe and exhaling in joy.

The world was a very different place then, yet much of what came to light and life that year has and continues to influence our culture, our lives, and our livelihoods.

Back in 1959, when they designed and developed the Rustic Shingle roofing system, Kaiser Aluminum was a household name. Purchased by our company, Classic Metal Roofing Systems, in 1980, we’re now celebrating the birthday of a mid-century modern roofing solution, with a style that’s endured for 60 years.

1959 cultural icons

Woody station wagons, starburst clocks, and record players all disappeared for a few decades, then came back into style as cultural icons. Rustic aluminum shingles hung around and are still cool, today; both in style and function.

The Dangers of Trees Hanging over Your Roof


The Dangers of Trees Hanging over Your Roof

Let’s face it. Trees provide well-deserved shade when you’re outside in Florida’s hot, baking sun but did you know that just one branch from a tree could cost you hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars in unnecessary roof repairs?

Obstructing Gutters – The purpose of gutters is to allow water to drain off your roof and away from your house. When gutters are clogged with leaves and other debris, the water accumulates and, as a result, that water is sent straight down your foundation where it can begin to stain and even rot your siding.
Unwelcomed Guests – Trees are home to many critters and a playhouse for others. Squirrels and raccoons are notorious for using trees as a source of food and shelter. A branch leaning over your roof will provide them with access to your home. Don’t be surprised if you find that a critter has taken up residence in your attic!
Shingle Damage – Branches can further scrape off the asphalt granules that most shingles are made of causing the shingles to have a shorter life span because of the excessive damage. This damage will also weaken the shingle and place you at risk for roof leaks and possibly losing your shingles during a storm.
Wet Roof – Shade is nice just not so nice for your roof. As a tree shades your home, it hinders the evaporation of any remaining moisture allowing it to soak into your roof causing decay, leaks, and increased energy bills.
Boom! – Did you hear something? Oh! It was a branch falling on your roof!

Overhanging branches will not live forever. Be especially vigilant to survey your property, especially after a storm, and remove any damaged or dead branches before they have the potential to fall and hurt your roof or worse, you!
