What's Up With That: Rocky Roofs

So we're pleased as punch that people are actually sending in questions to "What's Up With That?", our new Curbed category about unexplained, random city stuff. Yeah, we're dorks. Anyway, a query from curious reader:

"What's up with all those mid-century and/or tract style houses with rocks on the roof? I've seen homes in my area, Sunset Plaza, where they've taken off the rocks, replaced the paper underneath, and restored the rocks."

We're going to try and get someone to answer the question by the end of the day. Send your own What's Up questions here.

ANSWER: We get the straight dope in comments. Check out this link for information about rocks on roofs.
