ROOF-COVERING.

Specification of Letters Patent.

PatentedDec. *7, 1915.

Application filed July 8, 1912. Serial No. 708,227.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, ARTHUR N. Pnirrnn. a citizen of the United States, residing at Methuen, in the county of Essex and State of Massachusetts, have invented certainnew and useful Improvements in Roof-Coverings, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to roofs and to devices for preserving the coverings of roofs especially those made ofwooden shingles.

The purposes of my invention are to more closely attach the courses of shingles to a roof, and to provide that the nails or other fastening devices shall pass through the thick end of a course of shingles whereby there will be less likelihood of the shingles being torn or blown off or otherwise detached. It is particularly useful in repairing roofs covered with worn out shingles or with shingles which have begun to decay or to curl or warp.

In the drawings, Figure l. is a perspective of a sectional elevation of a new roof pro vided with my device. Fig. 2 is a perspective of a sectional elevation of an old roof with mypreferred construction for old roofs. Fig. 3 shows in perspective my preferred form of binding strip for a new roof. Fig. 1 shows in perspective my preferred form of binding strip for an old roof. Fig. 5

is a cross sectional view of a binding stripwith an ornamental top. Fig. 6 is a sectional view of a roof with a modified form of binding strip and Fig. 7 is an enlarged cross sectional view of the binding strip shown in Fig. 6.

A. represents the wooden roof boards of a new roof and 10, 11, 12, 13, 1-1 and represent the horizontal courses of wooden shingles all supposed to be new. Iarallel with the lower edge of each second course running along the top thereof and preferably a short distance above such lower edge, I place wooden binding strips B which I attach by means of nails 18. With the usual arrangement of the courses of shingles wherein the shingles of a lower course extend up to or beyond the lower edge of the second course above, it will be observed that the nails 18 pass through a strip B and through the lower part of course 13 the middle part of course 12 and even into the thin part of course 11, thence into the roof boards A. Such nails will always pass through two courses and frequently through three as shown. Thereby the two or three courses are firmly bound together and to the roof greatly strengthening the construction. xleferrlng to Fig. 3, each binding strip B 18 formed with transverse channels 20. In case of a new roof, the space 21 between the channels is preferably rounded whereby very small bearing surfaces come in contact with thecourses of shingles. The purpose of these channels is to permit water to run through freely down the roof and through the binding strips and also to permit a free circulation of air between each binding strip and the adjoining course of shingles whereby decay is avoided.

In Fig. 2, I show my preferredconstruction for an old roof, wherein H represents the roof boards and 30, 31, 82, 33, 34: and 35 represent adjoining courses of shingles winch are supposed to be old and more or less worn, curled or warped. With such a roof, I prefer to use a binding strip C along each course or along each second course parallel with the lower edge thereof and a short distance back from the edge. In these binding strips C, which I prefer to use for old shingles, the channels 22 are of a some what different form from those shown in B, the spaces between being longer and flat whereby a greater bearing surface comes in contact with the old shingles thus correcting any tendency on their part to curl or warp.

Fig. 5 shows a section of a binding strip D which may have a molded top as 24: and suitable channels 25.

In Fig. 6 is shown a section of a building F with courses of shingles 10, 41 and 42 held in place by binding strips G which are beveled or slanted at theirtops so that when in place water will run over the top as well as through the channels 51. Thereby if the channels are stopped up by refuse or otherwise, there will be no backing up of the water on the roof. With a roof covered with my roof covering, the shingles are held tight and there is no chance for warping or curling and there is no chance for a shingle to be lifted by the wind until it works so loose that it frees itself from the nail by which it is held.

It is particularly valuable in repairing old roofs and in avoiding the necessity of reshingling. I prefer to attach the binding strip a short distance back of the thick end of the shingles so that any water which overflows will strike the large end of the shingles of an upper course in preference to the thin part of the shingles of a lower course.

I can use my binding strips to good ad-, vantage over the lap between horizontal strips of sheet roofing such as rubberoid and it serves to hold the lower end of one sheet and the upper end of the sheet below firmly in placeaga-inst wind and Weather and at thesame time permits rain water to pass over the top.

What I claim as my invention and desire to cover by Letters Patent, is:

V 1. A roof covering which comprises 21 pl urality of horizontal courses, comblned with a series of binding strips which have beveled tops and through which are transverse channels, said binding strips being attached by nails parallel with and near the lower edges of and on top of such courses.

2. A roof covering for pitched roofs which comprises roof boards, a plurality of horizontal courses of wood shingles, combined with a series of binding strips attached by nails parallel with and near the lower edges of and on top of the courses of shingles each strip having a plurality of transverse channels and so beveled at the top that when in place the top slants downward from the horizontal.

In testimony whereof I, hereto aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
