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.
