J. P. WILLOCK ET AL ROOFING CONSTRUCTION Filed Nov. 15, 1932 ATTOR N EY of rope and which is saturated with asphalt and may he formed from hemp or the like, but in any event the flexible elements prevent driving rain from passing between the overlapped portions, as well as act as cushioning means for the shingles as will he apparent.
In applying our covering, the sheets oi. insulating material are first laid, and the first row of shingles are nailed in place, with a flexible element below the same and arranged adjacent the lower edge of the row. The cleats are then insorted with their body portions underlying the confronting ends of the shingles, and the next row of shingles are nailed in place with the flexible element between the overlapped portions of the first and second rows. This operation is continued until the entire roof or side wall is completely covered, and it will be obvious that a roof or side Wall that is finished with our covering will last for an indefinim period of time Without attention or repairs.
While we have stated that the shingles are iormed from a composition of asphalt and con crete, we want it understood that the shingles can he iormed from slate, clay or other :linm! non-fiexihle fire resisting material.
it is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features oi? our invention will he readily apparent.
We desire it to he understood that we may make changes in the construction and in the combination and airangexnent of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.
What we claim is:-
The combination of a plurality of layed shingles overlapping each other in one direction of the lay thereof, with joints between said shingles, cleats underlying the Joints between said shingles and overlapped a considerable distance thereby at the joints, each of said cleats being formed with trough-like edges parallel with each other and at opposite sides of the joints between the shingles and opening in the direction of Water flow courses upon said shingles, and hook ends on said cleats to engage with the underlying edges of the shingles at the overlap thereof, each cleat presenting at its side next to the shingles a non-protruding surface for the contact oi the Joint edges of said shingles adjacent each other throughout the lay of said shingles.
