Patented May 5, 1925:.

UNITED, STATES EDWIN PARKER, OF KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI.

ROOF.

Application fil ed April 30, 1923. Serial No. 635,422.

.To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that EDWIN F. PARKER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kansas City, in the county of Jackson and State of Missouri, has invented certain new and useful Improvements in Roofs, of which the following is a specification.

This invention has reference to improvements in roofs and its object is to provide means for repairing or reroofing cheaply while at the same time eliminating the tearing oil of shingles, thus doing away with taking chances on the occurrence of inclement weather.

The invention has the advantage of permitting the use ofcheap grades of shingles for new roofs without incurring the liability of quick decay of such roofs.

The invention will be best understoodv pressed in the appended claim.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of a shingle roof constructed in accordance with the invention; :5 Figure 2 is a plan view thereof;

Figure 3 is a longitudinal secton of a portion of an improved roof; and

Figure t is a perspective View of a protecting layer for shielding the shingles from the effects of the weather.

Referring to the drawings, there is shown a series of shingles 1 which are assembled to be held in position by nails 2 traversing a superlayer of roofing paper or fabric over- 4 lying the nails 2 to protect them from the efiects of inclement weather.

In applying the paper or fabric 3 the heads of the nails 2 are covered by the fabric 3, thus protecting them close to the lower edge of the shingles, which nails are also located close to the lower edge of the fabric covering 3. By this means the shingles are anchored in position by the nails 2 and the shingles and fabric being protected from the effects of weather. These materials do not curl up and consequently lie flat on the roof, holding the various parts of the roof in position. v v

The roofing paper or composition is in the form of strips of such width as to slide about two inches more or less underneath the shingles while the nails are covered by the strips and nailed through the strips on the lower shingles'to be subsequently covered by upper roofingjstrips with good strips constituting joints over the good shingles. By means of this invention reroofing may be very cheaply performed for the old roof does not have to be torn off and the roofing may be worked with a cheap grade of new shingles especially for new roofs. The shingles are of standard length either the shingles constituting parts of a new roof or constituting repairs to an old root. In either case theroofing paper or composition is slid about two inches under the shingles and the nails are covered by strips nailed through said strips on the lower shingles with the composition strips breaking joint with the shingles over the latter. The composition used may be that employed in connection with roofs in wh ch the composition is obtained in strips and is thoroughly protective of the shingles so that even though exposed to weather the shingles will last many years and these strips will protect the nails holding the shingles in place so that weather conditions will not affect them.

i What is claimed is j A roof structure comprising longitudinally tapered shingles arranged in overlapping rows upon a support, a plane strip of pliable material for each row of shingles, the strips being applied to the exposed upper surfaces of the rows of shingles. each strip having one of. its edges flush with the butt end edges of one row of the shingles, and the opposite edge portion ofthe strip being inserted between the overlapping portionsof adjacentrows of the shngles, securing devices passing transversely through the overlapping portions of adjacent rows of the shingles and passing through the edge portions of the strips, which are inserted between the overlapping portions of the adjacent rows of shingles, said securing de- 5 Vices enteringthe support, the errangement being such thatthe butt end edges of the shingles are exposed above the upper surface of the strip which is applied to the upper surface of the next adjacent row of shingles.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

EDWIN F. PARKER.
