Art Bleam (my Dad and best friend) started the family trade in the late 1950’s. It was about 1965 when I started working with him. A couple years later, I could out solder any kid on the block. Most jobs in the 1960’s were farm houses and hip style barns. Beginning in the 1970’s, the ranch style home became popular in this area. To fill requests, we offered pre-painted metals in a choice of white and brown. Two colors satisfied the local market until the late 1980’s, at which time 12 new colors became available. Today we install over 50 colors in several styles.
