Alabama is not exactly known for devastating weather and the average roof in Alabama lasts a good while. However, when a roof repair or replacement situation comes up you should act on it quickly. Waiting on a leaking roof can cause major internal home problems, especially during the rainy seasons. In fact, summer weather can actually accelerate rotting of your roof's underlayment.

Alabama, the Cotton State and the Heart of Dixie was the twenty-second state to have joined the Union on December 14, 1819, and is home to the infamous Moon Tree. Loblolly pine seeds traveled to the moon on Apollo 14 in 1971, and in 1976 one of those seedlings was planted on the State Capitol's lawn. The Moon Tree is a tangible example of Alabama's rich tapestry of history back dropped against today's modern future.
Alabama's state name derives from the Alabama River, named by some of the first European explorers to discover the area. The explorers derived the river's name from two American Choctaw Indian tribe words: "Alba" and "Amo," which mean vegetation and gatherer, respectively.
Besides the Choctaw, other Native Americans called Alabama their home long before white settlers and explorers ever arrived. Among those tribes were the Cherokee, Creek, and Chickasaw, and Alabama makes up a portion of the legendary Trail of Tears.
Alabama is birth place of the civil rights movement thanks to Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott. Other historical notables to come out the state have been Helen Keller, football coach Bear Bryant, and the capture of Mobile Bay August 5, 1864 during the Civil War led Union Admiral David Farragut to shout the famous "Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!"
Today, Alabama is a very much modern state. Although known as the "Cotton State," Al. only ranks about eighth in national production of cotton. Other agricultural production includes cattle, eggs and poultry, peanuts (thanks to an early 1900s boll weevil epidemic and scientist George W. Carver with his 300 uses of the peanut), soybeans, milk, and of course the Alabama peach.
The state does not just specialize in agricultural products though. Cast-iron and steel piping is made in Alabama as well as paper products, plastics, aerospace products (the first Saturn rockets were actually developed in Al. and were used to fire men up to the moon and bring back the pine tree seeds). In fact, today, Alabama boasts the country's heaviest growth segments in industrialization. With Honda, Toytal, Mercedes-Benz U.S., and Hyundai Motor Manufacturing making their home in Alabama, the state as a whole is quickly outpacing Detroit, Michigan's title of automaker.
