A Little Snow Guard History

Posted by Roof Things on 3/25/2011 to Roof Things History
Check out this bill of sale for Snow Guards for Dr. M. Halliday that was issued on February 25th 1897. Snow guards have been around A LONG time. It's been exactly 114 years and 1 month since Halliday billed for his invention of the snow guards. I love how the address of this company points out the obvious , "between 2d and 3d Aves". A few years after the snow guards was invented, Charles G. Halliday, M. Hallidays son, bought out his fathers roofing business and continued pratice as a Slate and Metal roofer. He also continued to manufacture the snow guards for slate and slanting roofs.

Mini Snow Guard by Sno Shield

Posted by Roof Things on 3/19/2011 to Mini Snow Guard Articles
We are happy to announce that we now carry the mini snow guard by Sno Shield called the SS Mini. Mini snow guards are a great alternative to full size snow guards in areas where you don't receive a lot of snow, or to use in tight spots where the larger ones just won't fit.

Friends in Japan

Posted by Roof Things on 3/16/2011
In the summer of 2009, we welcomed two men we had never met before from Japan to our home for a week during an international dance festival. They were members of Musashi Kengo Daiko, basically a martial arts drumming group. I was amazed at the respect their youth had for others. The people of Japan are truly some of the most humble and caring people I have met.
