Eoorme ELEMENT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb; 25, 1919..

i Application filed August 12, 1915. Serial No. 45,207.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I,-FREDERIGK C. OVER- BURY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Hillsdale, in the county of Bergen and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Roofing Elements, of which the following is a specification.

This invention has relation to prepared roofing materials, and more particularly those which are laid to present the appearance of tile-roofs or other ornamental forms of roofs. I

One of the drawbacks to the use of prepared asphalt roofing, even when surfaced with slate or other crushed mineral, is that when laid. it is apparently flat and of a monotonous appearance. 'On the other hand such prepared roofing has many advantages, since it is waterproof and weatherproof, and is durable, comparatively inexpensive and relatively easy to lay.

I have discovered that 'I am able to break up the monotony of a roof laid with such material, and to give it the'appearance of one laid with battens, and, if desired, to

7 cause it to appear as though laid with angular or curved tiles. These effects may be produced by forming the roofing elements with cut-outs or recesses, and, if desired, by employing grit of different colors or shades on the surface of the elements.

Preferably, though not necessarily, the elements consist of shingle strips having along the edge which is to be exposed tabs or projections. In addition to the recesses between these tabs or projections, I provide deeply extending recesses. When the strips are laid in overlapping relation on the roof, these recesses produce an illusor effect of battens, and, with the light coming at certain angles, give the roof the appearance of being formed of curved or angular tiles.

It is difiicult, on a mechanical drawing to reproduce the effect produced by these shingle strips on a roof; however in Figure 1 'I have illustrated a roofing element embodying the invention. a v r Fig. 2 represents in perspective view .a' portion of a roofing formed ofthe strip or element shown in Fig. 1.-

Fig. 3-.illustrates a similar elemcnt formed with strips of-diflerently; colored grit to increase the illusion of an undulating; or

. many di curved surface such as tiles.

Fig. 4: shows a portion of a roof as it appears to a person standing below it.

produced by curved Figs. 5 and, 6 illustrate another form of I roofing element embodying the invention.

Fig. 7 shows individual shingles embodying the invention.

While the separate elements may be of any desired length, or may consist of individual shingles, I prefer in most cases to elements are formed, is preferably impregnated or saturated with a hydrocarbon water-proofing compound,;and, after being coated with pitch or asphalt of a melting point high enough to resist the action of solar heat, it is preferably surfaced with waterproof grit, such as crushed slate .or other crushed mineral of the desired color.

In Fig. 1,'the shingle strip 10 is out along its lower edge to form concavely curved pointed tabs or projections 11, through which extend the deep slots, recesses or cutouts 12.

When such strips are laid in overlapping relation, so that the recesses of one strip register with the recesses of the adjacent strips, as'shown in Fig. 2, the roof appears as though covered with curved tiles, and with battens between them. This effect ma be heightened by forming the strips wit stripes 13 of darker colored grit, as shown.

in Figs. 3 and 4.

In Fig. 5, the strip has angular tabs 14 through which extend the cut-outs or recesses 15, so as to present the appearance shown in Fig. 6 when laid. A roof so formed presents the appearance of parallel ridges and valleys'and with battens in the valleys. This illusion may be heightened by emloyingstripes of darker colored grit.

y varying the configuration of the tabs, erent effects-may be produced. The same effect can be secured by cutting the strips thus made into individual shingles Jae shown in Fig. 7

. Having thus explained the'inature of my said invention and described a way of making and using the same, without attempting to describe all of the ways in which it may be made or all of the modes of its use, what I claim is:

1. A roofing element formed of waterproofed weatherproofed felt and having one or more tabs or projections, and having recesses extending longitudinally of said tabs or projections, the walls of which are adapted to cast shadows and to produce, when said elements are laid in overlapping rows, the effect of raised tiles.

2. A roofing element formed of waterproofed weatherproofed felt, consisting of a strip adapted to be laid with other like strips in overlapping rows, the portion of such strip to be exposed being formed with duce the illusion of raised tiles.

3. A roofing element formed of waterproofed weatherproofed felt, surfaces with crushed mineral, consisting of astrip adapted to be laid with other like strips in overlapping rows, the portions of such strip to beexposed being formed with tabs or projections having elongated recesses, the crushed mineral on said strip being formed in alternating fields of different color, ar-

ranged in predetermined relation to said tabs, to produce the illusion of raised tiles. In testimony whereof I have allixed my signature.
