J. BALLETTA Patented Nov. 12, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE HOUSE ooRNERs Joseph Balletta, Jamaica Beach, N. Y., assigner of one-half toi Abraham Bashuk, Brooklyn, N, Y.

Application september 13,1934, serial 10.743397 1 claim. (c1. zo-n This invention relates to a device for wind and waterproofing the corner of a shingled house or building.

When houses or buildings, either new or old, 5' are shingled, especially with asphalt shingles, it is always diiiicult to secure a tight joint at the vertical corners of the building. As the result thereof, the shingles at the corner are often blown loose by the wind, and rain is allowed to penetrate beneath the corner, rotting the frame of the building, and damaging the inside of the house. The same problems which arise at the corners of the house likewise arise around the edges of Window frames or wherever the line of shingles starts on the side of the house.

'I'his invention overcomes this form of diiculty and makes it possible to provide a wind-proof and vwater-proof joint between the asphalt shingles and any corner or edging or framework on the house.

A further object of this invention is to provide a wind and waterproofing device for the corner of the house which, while intended for` use with asphalt shingles, may also be used with any type of shingles. One form of the invention is particularly intended for corners of the house and another form is intended for use along a window frame or for use along any vertical edging on the house. This latter form may likewise be used on each side of every shingle, if desired, along the entire side of the house.

In the preferred form, this invention is preformed out of copper, but it will be obvious that it may be made of any other type of sheet material, and especially of sheet metal. It is also included within the object of this invention that the device may be made of any suitable material, such as molded composition matter.

With the foregoing and other objects in view,

as will hereinafter become apparent, this invention comprises the constructions, combinations and arrangements of parts hereinafter set forth, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing:

Fig. 1 is a horizontal sectional view of the invention applied to a corner of a house, taken approximately on the line I-I of Fig. 2.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the Same.

There is shown at I0 a schematic representation of the clapboards forming the corner II of a house or other building, wherein it is desired to apply shingles of asphalt, or other types of shingles, along the side thereof. Shingling the side of a house is a very desirable form of finishing the outside thereof, except for theobjection that the shingles` are easily loosened by wind and rain along `the corners thereof, or wherever a vertical edgeof the shingle is exposed.

Instead of applying the asphalt shingles I2, I3, I4 and I5,` directly to the clapboards or frame 5 ID on opposite sides of the corner II, the device I6 of this invention is fitted along the outside of the corner II. This device I6 is of a height equal to the height of the corner of the house that is being protected thereby and is of a width suf- 10 cient to allow the necessary folds shown on the drawing to be made therein so that the entire device will be preferably from a single sheet of copper. The device I6 consists of two U-shaped l channel members II and I8, each channel meml5 ber having long legs I9 and 20 which fit along the outside of the clapboards I0 at the corner II of the house. As will be observed, these channels I'I and I8 are placed at right angles to each other, whereby theA long legs I9 and 2|] are at right 20 angles to each other, and thereby enclose the corner of the house.

Short legs 2| and 22 complete the channel members I'I and I8. These short legs 2| and 22 are integrally connected to each other by having 25 portions 23 and 24 folded back from the ends of the legs 2l and 22 in parallelism thereto and then connected by an integrally curved strip 25. As will be observed, the channel members, Il and I8 including their long and short legs, the par- 30 allel' portions, and the. curved strip 25, are all part of one integral piece of any material folded into this form, the sheet material being preferably sheet copper.

It will be understood that other sheet material, 35 such as sheet aluminum or aluminumalloy, may be used, if desired, and furthermore that the device I6 need not necessarily be made of copper or metal but instead may be made of a molded compositional matter or made of reinforced asphalt, 40 if desired.

The space enclosed by the bases of the channels II and I8 and the curved strip 25 may be left hollow, or, if desired, a quarter molding of suitable size may be inserted therein to reinforce the same. 45

In applying this invention to the corner of a house, thedevice I6 is applied along the corner I I and then nails 26, suitably spaced, are inserted through the long legs I9 and 2U of the channels Il and I8. After this device I6 is thus put into posi- 50 tion, the asphalt shingles I2, I3, I4 and I5 are placed with their edges in the channel portions and secured to the house in the usual manner, the shingles being placed either in parallelism with each other or in overlapped relation if desired. 55

Another form of this 'invention is made in the form of .a channel having a base 3l, a long leg 32 and a short leg 33. This form 30 is intended for use along any vertically exposed edge of the shingles I2 and I3 which is not at the corner of the house. This vertical edge may be along the frame of a window or door, for instance, or, if desired, this form 3U may be used on the opposite vertical edges of every shingle. This form 30 is likewise secured tothe clapboardsV I0 of the house bynails 26. Y Y' As will be apparent, with this invention, either in form I 6 or form 30, secured inthe appropriate place as above described in connection with the shingles o n the side of the house, it isimrpossible for wind to get under the vertical edges of the shingles to tear them' loose or for rain to penetrate them because no vertical edges are left exposed to the water. y 1

This invention may .be applied to a new house,

when shingling the same, and maybe likewise with equal facility, applied to old houses when the vertical sides are being refinished with shingles.

The novel features and the operation of this device will be apparent from the foregoing description. While the device has been shown and the structure described in detail, it is obvious that this is not to be considered limited to the exact form disclosed and that any changes may be made therein within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of this invention. 5 Y

Having thus set forth and disclosedV the nature of this invention, what is claimed is:

A device for windproofing and waterproong a vertical corner of a building, comprising a unitary piece of sheet copper, said sheetcopper being formed into two channeled members and a joining strip, said channeled members being formed with .a long leg and a short leg and a joining member between said long and short legs and' at right angles thereto, each long leg being 15 adapted to receive fastening means for securing Vthe device in operative position, said joining strip c connected to the ends of said short legs, said joining strip being curved to a quarter circle whereby said channel members are at right anglesto each 20V 'Y Yother so as to be securedon Yboth sides ofthe 4 building corner, the channels insaid channel Y members being adapted to receive the Vvertical edges of thebuilding shingles.
