Figures 1 and 2 are respectively plan views of the two classes of shingles embodied in my roofing.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary plan view of the roofing.
This roofing comprises generally two classes of shingles, the shingles of each class being designed to be arranged end to end in a row, the shingles of one class being arranged alternately with and lapping the row of shingles of the other class; and the shingles of one class being formed at theirlower edges with projections and cut-outs 'of one half of two kinds of geometrical figures, and the shingles of the other class being formed with complemental cut-outs and projections arranged to complete the geometrical figure when brought into juxtaposition with the projections and cut-outs of the shingles of the first class.
1 and 2 designate respectively the two classes of shingles, these being multiple composlition shingles of any well known materia The shingles 1 are arranged in one row while the shingles 2 are arranged in another row lapping the row of shingles 1 and also alternately with the shingles 1 so that they lap the joint between the shingles 1 substantially equally on opposite sides of the joint.
The shingles 1 are provided with semihexagonal projections 3 and semiquadrangular projections 4 with the interposed cut-outs 5, 6; the shingles 2 are formed with semihexagonal cut-outs 7 and semiquadrangular cut-outs 8 complemental to the projections 3 and 4.
Thus when the shingles are brought into juxtapositiom'the hexagonal projections and ABUIDIAOONO, 0F FULTON, NEW YORK cut-outs provide an hexagonal outline, and the semiq uadrangular projections and cutouts provlde a quadran the roofing is compose agons and quadrangles.
