Patented Oct. 24, 1933 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1,931,709 SHIPLAP BRICK smme Frederick Schaffert, Carlstadt, N. J. Application January 21, 1932. Serial No. 587,977

6 Claims. (Cl. 20-5) This invention relates to siding constructions and more particularly to a wooden siding construction' having the outer face thereof formed to simulate a brick wall construction.

5 An object of this invention is to provide a siding construction of this, kind which can be positioned on the outer surface of a building, the siding having longitudinal and vertical grooves so as to simulate the face of bricks and the conventional space between the bricks.

Another object of this invention is to provide a siding construction of this kind which is so formed that the horizontally disposed boards or strips may be adjusted vertically to a degree permitting the enlargement of the horizontal grooves between respective boards thereby eliminating the cutting of narrow strips beneath window frames or other openings where the full board will not occupy the entire space between the edge of the opening and the succeeding board.

A'further object of this invention is to provide in a construction of this kind means'for permitting the entrance of air behind the main portion of the facing boards so as to prevent the 6 accumulation of dampness behind the boards which is usually the case where the entire board lies flat against the side of the building.

A still further object of this invention is to provide a siding member which is so constructed that. it will not readily warp due to the construction of the rear face thereof which'is provided with a horizontal groove or grooves permitting the entrance of air behind the body of the board so than any dampness entering behind the board will readily dry out.

The above and various other objects and advantages of this invention will in part be described in and in' part be understood from the following detailed description of the present 0 preferred embodiment, the same being illustrated in the accompanying drawing wherein:-

Figure 1 is a fragmentary perspective view partly in section and partly in detail of a device constructed according to the preferred embodi- 5 ment of this invention;

Figure 2 is a fragmentary front elevation of a wall having on the outer face thereof siding members constructed as shown in Figure 1;

Figure 3 is an end elevation of a modified 0 form of this construction;

' surface of the body 11 thereby providing a shoul- Figure 4' is a further modification of this invention.

Referring to the drawing wherein like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the numeral 55 designates generally a building joist which has secured thereto the convention sheathing 13 of the tongue and groove type.

The numeral 11 designates generally the body of a board or facing member which is adapted to be secured to the outer face of the sheathing 13. This board or facing member 11 is substantially rectangular in transverse section and is provided at the upper edge thereof with an upwardly extending tongue 12, this tongue 12 having the inner face thereof coplanar with the inner surface of the body 11 and the outer surface of the tongue 12 is inclined in an inward and upward direction, as at 14. I

The lower edge of the body 11 is also provided with a depending overlapping tongue or member 15 which has the outer surface or face thereof coplanar with the face of the body 11 and the inner face of this overlapping tongue 15 is inclined, as at 16, the inclination being similar to the inclination of the outer face of the tongue 12 so that when two of these boards are placed flat against the sheathing 13, the depending tongue 15 will overlap the tongue 12 and the imclined surfaces 14 and 16 of these tongues will contact one with the other. The upper edge of the tongue 12 is cut off, as at 17, and in like manner the tongue 15 terminates at the upper inner edge thereof at a point outwardly from the inner der 18 against which the upper edge 1'? of the tongue 12 is adapted to abut.

Through the provision of this construction, the lower edge of this tongue 15 will be disposed in spaced relation to the upper edge of the body 11, thereby providing a horizontal groove 19 between succeeding boards and this groove is of a width substantially equal to the width of the conventional tiers of bricks.

Through the inclination of the outer face of the tongue 12 in a downward and outward direction, the water striking this face will flow downwardly and onto the upper edge of the body 11 and is prevented from entering between the boards by reason of the contacting inclined faces 14 and 16. i

The body 11 is provided at longitudinally spaced points therealong on the outer surface with vertically disposed grooves or channels 20 which extend entirely across the body 11 and these grooves 20 communicate at each end with the horizontal grooves 19 and through the provision of these grooves, the face of the body 11 is cut up into a plurality of brick simulating members B.

The rear face of the body 11 is provided with a longitudinally extending channel 21 which is disposed intermediate the upper and lower edges of the body and this channel 21 provides an air space between the upper and lower edges of the body 11 and between the outer face of the sheathing 13 and the confronting face of the body 11. Through the provision of this horizontal groove 21, the air is permitted to enter behind the body 11 and any moisture which might enter the board 11 will readily dry out and will not have a tendency to deteriorate the rear of the board through decay or the like.

As shown in Figure 4, the body 11* is provided with opposed tongues similar to the body 11, which tongues have been designated 12 and 15*. As these tongues are similar to the tongues 12 and 15, further description thereof is believed unnecessary.

The body 11 is provided at the rear thereof with a pair of longitudinally extending grooves 22 and 23, and a rib or longitudinally extending member 24 is disposed between these horizontal grooves 22 and 23.

As shown in Figure 3, the body 11 is provided with the tongues 12 and 15 and at the rear thereof is provided with a plurality of air channels or horizontal grooves 25 which are separated by ribs 26. It will, therefore, be obvious that any desired number of air channels which do not communicate with each other may be provided at the rear of the body of the board herein disclosed. V

In the use of the siding members herein disclosed, the lower course of the sidings may be attached to the sheathing by extending nails or the like through the upper tongue 12 at a point where the nails will be covered up by succeeding courses and the succeeding course may then be positioned so that the tongue 15 will overlap the incl'ned face 14 of the lowermost siding member 11. The nails may be driven through the tongue 15 of the upper member, being positioned in the vertical groove 20 so that no nails will appear on the outer surface of the brick members B. After the first course of boards has been lad, the succeeding courses may be nailed one to another and the nails driven through the two overlapping portions into the sheathing. In the laying of the courses of boards where an opening such as a window or the like is positioned above one course a distance greater than the width of one of the boards, the board immediately below the opening may he moved upwardly a slight dstance so as to cover the intervening space below the opening, this being possible by enlarging the horizontal groove 19 and moving the shoulder 16 of the upper board away from the upper end 17 of the preceding board. In this manner, it will not be necessary to insert a relatively thin strip of material between the window opening and the adjacent board. Where this procedure is followed, it is, of course, understood that the tongues 12 and M will nevertheless be positioned in overlapping relation so that the conventional shiplap will be provided which will dran off any water striking the outer surface of the body 11.

It is, of course, understood that various changes and modifications may be made in the details of construction and design of the above specifically described embodiment of this invention without departing from the spirit thereof, such changes and modifications being restricted only by the scope of'the following claims.

What is claimed is:-

1. A siding as set forth comprising an elongated body member rectangular in side elevation and substantially rectangular in transverse section and having vertical grooves therein to simulate bricks, and tongues formed with each edge of the body, each tongue having one side thereof coplanar with one face of the body and another side disposed on an angle to the first side, the tongue on one edge of the member being relatively shorter than the tongue on the other edge and overlapping the tongue on the confronting edge of a succeeding member.
