Howard Breedlove, started roofing in Southern California in 1963. He installed wood shingles and shakes on new residential housing for the Carpenters Union. In 1969 Howard moved to Madera and started roofing out of the Fresno Union Hall and then the Merced Union Hall. After the work ran out from the union halls he started working for several private roofing companies in the Fresno area. After years of roofing experience he and his wife Frances opened Madera Roofing in 1974.
