NORMAN P. HARSHBEBGER, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO TEE-LOK SHINGLE COMPANY, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, A CORPORATION OF ILLINOIS.

SHINGLE.

' Application filed. December 14, 1921. Serial No. 522,223.

To all wwmtmay concem:

- Be it known that I, NORMAN P. HARsH- BERGER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in Shingles, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to shingles .and more particularly tao-composite shingles.

One object of my invention is to reinforce or strengthen against bending or warping the shingle body by bending two of the opposite edges of the body backward upon themselves to provide a double thickness of. material along such edges.

A further object 0f my invention is to fold or bend such portions of each shingle on opposite sides thereof so that abut joints may be had, with the folded portions of the overlapping shingles aboveand below the same, respectively.

Another object of my invention is to lay the shingles in horizontal `rows with .the abut joints extending upward and rendered leak proof by the folded portions at the joints and to overlap the rows and provide leak proof joints between the various shingles thereof by having the folded edges of the shingles in one row abutting against -vthe folded edges of the shingles in the adjacent rows.

A nd a further Object of my invention is to provide the shingles of each row with interengaging means, such as tongues and notches, for aligning and holding them "against accidental displacement while' being laid.

. n the accompanying drawings- Fig. 1 is a top plan view of a plurality of laid shingles, all constructed in accordance with my invention; one of the shingles being partly broken away to show the notch in the folded section at one end thereof;

Fig. 2 is a sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1; and

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the shingles.

A shingle constructed in accordance with my invention, as shown in Fig. 3, has a flat body portion 1, preferably square or rectangular. in shape. rlwo of the olposite edges of sald body portlon, namely t themselves during the manufacture of the shingle to provide the folded portions or sections 2 and 3. These are folded on opposite sides of the shingle body, as shown,

so that one portion, namely, the portion 2,

is on the weather side of the shingle and the portion 3 is on the under side thereof. These folded portions extend the full width of the shingle body and provide a double thickness of material at each end of the shingle. Thus the shingle is strengthened or reinforced against` bending or warping, and furthermore sufficient thickness of material is provided for holding and receiving the fastening nails used for attaching the shingle to a roof or other part of a building.

As shown in Fig. 3, one of the folded seee end edges l thereof, are folded or bent backward upontions, namely the one 2, has a tongue 4 in the plane of the section 2 and integral therewith Said tongue 4 is located-intermediate the ends of the section 2 and extends inward therefrom over the adjacent portion of the shingle body 1. The other section 3 has a notch 5, the -same shape as the tongue 4 and designed to receive the tongue 4 on an adjacent shingle. Said notch 5 is located between the ends of the section 3 and is aligned with the tongue 4, as shown.

The shingles 1 are laid in horizontal rows, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2.- In Fig. 1, I have shown three rows of shingles and these rows have been indicated for reference by A, B, and C, with the first and last rows on opposite sides 0f and overlapping the intermediate row C. Each row comprises a plurality of said shingles 1 and these are arranged to overlap yeach other at their ends. The folded portions 2 of the shingles in each row (except the one atone end of the row) are overlapped and covered by the under surfaces 0f the adjacent shingles in such row, while the folded portions 3 of the shingles in said row lie on the Weather or upper surfaces of the adjacent shingles in that cent sections or portions 2 and are in abutting engagement therewith, as shown in Fig. 2. kThese folded sections 2, 3' `abutting es the shingles are laid, act as stop members 0n rthe various shingles to space them properly as they are laid without the necessity of the workmanpaying any attention to the spacing. v

The tongues 4 of the shingles in each row engage in the notches 5 of the adjacent shingles in the row, as shown in F ig. 1. These interfitting parts align the shingles in each row in being laid and prevent said shingles from accidental displacement laterally with respect'to each other. Thus, the work of laying the shingles is facilitated, as the shingles have self aligning means and are held in'alignment while' being nailed to the underlying roof or wall structure, as the case may be.

The folded sections or portions 2, 3 eX- tend upward of the roof or other part to which'the shingles are applied and, as -the folded edge of each portion 2 is inside of the adjacent portion 3, water o r moisture is prevented from leaking through the joints of the shingles at the folded parts.

The folded portions 2and 3 having abut joints, as distinguished from hook joints, makes the shingles overlap properly at the joints and give the shingles a pleasing appearance as there are no bulging or unsightly joints where the shingles meet.

The shingles 1 in each horizontal row overlap the shingles in the adjacent rows, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The folded edge of the folded section 2 of the shingle in one row abuts against the folded edge of the folded section 3 of the adjacent shingle in another row. This s aces the shingles in the rows as they are aid, and furthermore provides leak proof joints between the abut joints of the shingles of one row with the shingles of the adjacent rows.

I claim as my invention:

l. A plurality of shingles laid in a row, each shingle having a Hat body portion with two of its opposite end margins folded back on themselves on opposite sides of the shingle body to provide a double thickness of material along each of such, margins, said shin les being laid with the folded portion on tiie under side of one shingle having an abut joint with the folded portion on the upper side of the adjacent shingle and with said folded portions overlapping the body portions of said shingles. l

2. A plurality of shingles laid in overlapped horizontal rows, each row comprising a plurality of shingles, each shingle having a flat body ortion, said body portion of each shingle lilaving two of its opposite end margins bent back on themselves on opposite sides of the shingle bod to provide folded portions at the en s of the lapped horizontal rows, each row comprising a plurality of shingles, each shingle having a flat body portion, said body portion of each shingle having two of its opposite end margins bent back on themselves on opposite sides of the shingle body to provide folded portions at the endsof the shingle, the shingles in one row being laid to have the folded portion on the upper surface of one shingle abutting against the folded portion on the under surface of an adjacent n shingle, and the shingles of the rows overlapping with thefolded edges of the folded portions ofthe adjacent shingles abutting, 'the joints in one rowbeingvout of alignment with the joints in the adjacent rows.

4. A shingle, having a flat body portion, said body portion having two of its opposite margins folded back upon themselves on opposite sides of the shingle body to provide a double thickness of material along such margins, one of said folded portions having an inwardly extending tongue, and the other folded portion having a notch aligned with said tongue.

5. A shingle, having a flat body portion, said body portion havin two of its opposite margins folded bac upon themselves on opposite sides of the shingle body to provide a double thickness of material along such margins, one of said folded portions having an inwardly extending V-shaped tongue, and the other folded portion having a vlike shaped notch, said tongue and notch being aligned and located substantially midwaythe ends of their respective folded portions.

6. A plurality of shingles laid in a` row,

each shingle having a flat body portion with two of its opposite end margins folded back on themselves on opposite sides of the shingle bod to provide a double thickness of materiall along each of such margins, said shin les being laid with the folded portion on the 'under side of one shingle having an abut joint with the folded portion on the \upper side of the adjacent shingle, and the folded portions of said shingles have inter.- engaging parts for aligning the shingles and hol ing them against lateral displacement.
