Application filed February 23, 1921. Serial No. AA'LLW.

To all whom it may concern.'

Be it known that l, SHERMAN THOMPSON,

a citizen of the United States, and resident of the city of La Salle, county of La Salle,

and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful lmproveinents in Sheet- Metal Shingles, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in metallic shingles or tiles for roofing purposes and has for its object the yproduction of such a shingle or tile, that whereas, in outward appearance my metallic shingle or tile -simulates the regular wooden shingle, it is so formed and they are laid together so'that no flat surfaces are in contact, thereby doing away with the capillary action of flat surfaces in close contact with ,each other, which avoids the leakage formerly experienced in the use of metallic shingles.

ln addition to the above-mentioned noncapillary joints. the shingles or tiles are so formed with corrugations and gutters and provided with interlocking means as jvill be more specifically set forth below.

l attain these objects b v the construction set forth in the accompanying drawings Figure l is a plan view of one of my shingles or tiles.

Figure f2 is an end end of same.

Figure 3 is a cross sectional view of my shingle or tile along a line 3-3 of Figure l.

Figure 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of my shingle or tile along a line 4 4 of Figure l.

view of the bottom Figure 5 is a side view of my shingle orl tileshowing'the taper of the gutter and corrrugation.

Figure 6 is a plan view showing the laying and method of lapping the adjacent shingles or tiles.

Figure T is a longitudinal sectional view along aline 7T of Figure G, showing the contact between the shingles or tiles at the lapping points.

Figure S is a cross sectional view along a line (Oe-S of Figure showing the interlocking feature.

Figure 9 is a cross sectional view along a line 9 9 of Figure 6, showing the gutter `and contact between my shingles or tiles at the side lap.

Similar numeralsr represent similar parts `throughout the several views.

My shingle or tile is preferably pressed from a non-rusting metal such as Zinc and comprises a surface or body part l having. lips 2, 3 and 4 integral with said body part, but atan angle with the surface of said body1 part. llip or edge 3 has a small part or projection 5 integral therewith, lont extending outwardly therefrom by means of which it interlocks with the adjacent shingle or tile. lldge 4 has projecting from ita gutter Vpart 6, corrugation T and a nailing part 8, all formed Vintegral therewith, the lower. part being cut away as shown at 9 (see F igure l) sufficiently to allow the above mentioned interlocking part 5 of the adjacent shingle to enter same and thus lock the two shingles together, as shown (see 'Figure G). 10 and 1l are depressions formed in the body l by means of which the underside of the body l is kept away from the roof boards (see Figure 4t) and 'also serves as a line to which the overlapping shingles are placed, as shown in Figure 6. 7My shingles or tiles are fastened to the roof boards by means of suitable nails driven through the holes l2 shown.

From the above description it is evident that my metallic shingle or tile i's so shaped that in the laying of same there are noliat surfaces in contact with each other, only` all edges, which completely eliminates the capillaryaction between the surfaces and prevents any water from lodging at these points and being drawn past the shingles or tiles. thus preventing leakage from this source and also that it is so provided with gutters that in case a strong wind should blow or force any water beyond the edges, that said water will be taken care of thoroughly and further that a roof laid up with my shingles or tiles will in its .outward appearance closely resemble an ordinary roof laid' with wooden shingles.

lt will be understood, of course, that while l have here shown one form of my invention. l do not wish to limit myself to the exact form shown, but desire to have it taken in a sense illustrative of any or all the form coming fairly within the scope of my claims.

l claim l. It roofing shingle comprising a body part having its lateral edges turned down to forni angular sustaining flanges spacingthe body throughout its length from the roof surface, said flanges decreasing in height from one end to the other, the flange at one side having a lateral integral nailing extension-strip providedI substantially midway with a longitudinal ridge tapering in height toward one end in conformity With the cony necting flange, the space between the latter and the ridge receiving the opposite flange ofthe next shingle and being in excess of the thickness of such ange to permit of disposition of the adjacent shingle incoacting relation Without contact between the contiguous flanges.

2. A roofing shingle comprising a body part having its lateral edges turned down to form sustaining flanges spacing the body throughout its length from the roof surface, said flanges increasing in height toward the base end of the shingle, one of said flanges having on integral nailing extension-strip crimped up substantially midway and longitudinal thereof into a substantially triangular ridge uponuwhich the under surface of the next shingle finds rest, the ridge being spaced from the flangeto form al trough freely receiving the down-turned edge ofthe next adjacent shingle, the flange having the Vbody 3. A roofing shingle comprising a body part having'all of its edges but one turned down to form sustaining flanges spacing the throughoutv its length from the roof surface, the lateral'flanges of the shingle tapering from the base end to the upper end, a nailing extension at one side'of the shingle projecting laterally from its side flange, said extension terminating short of the base, and the adjacent flange having a notch therein, the shingle at' the opposite side from the notch having a locking tongue receivable in the notch of the next adjacent shingle, the shingle at a point adjacent to its top Where the overlapping shingle base edge rests be ing formed with supporting means engaging the 'roof surface to 'sustain the shingle in spaced relation to the latter.
