CHARLES E. GAYIJORI), OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO AARON K. STILES, OF SAME PLACE.

METALLIC CREST-Tl LING.

SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 440,104, dated November 4, 1890. Application filed AprillB, 1890. Serial No. 348,479- (No model-.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, CHARLES E. GAYLORD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Metallic Crest-Tiles, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in crest-tiling which is used particularly upon the ridges of gable, hip, or curb roofs, &c., of buildings for purposes of ornamentation.

As crest-tiling of the class to which my invention relates is intended more especially for use upon the cheaper class of houses, where in each instance a comparatively large quantity must be employed, the aim of improvement is necessarily in the direction of economy of manufacture as well as strength and durability.

he object of my invention is to provide crest-tiling of a construction which will afford to it the advantages named in an increased degree over the constructions hitherto commonly in use; and to this end my invention consists in a crest-tile having its upper or ornamental portion and one side of its flaring base formed of a single integral layer or thickness of sheet metal, and having the other side of its base of a separate sheet of metal, either part being provided at the joint with a shoulder to protect the joint from rain.

My invention further consists in a crest-tile having its upper or ornamental portion and one side of its flaring base formed of a single integral layer or thickness of sheet metal and provided at the junction of the upper and base portions with a recess.

In the drawings, Figure l is a view in end elevation of another form of the tiling; Figs. 2 and 3, broken perspective views of the sections of the tiling shown in Fig. 3, and Fig. 4 a sectional vie w of still another form of tiling.

In the construction shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3 one of the diverging sides of the base 13 is integral with the upper portion A, the sheet from which the parts are formed being bent, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, to produce a bead affording a recess 8. The other side of the base comprises a separate sheet beaded at the top, as shown in Fig. 3, to slide readily into the recess 8, as indicated in Fig. 1,and be thus securely held in place.

In the construction shown in Fig. 4 one side of the base B is integral with the upper portion A, the-sheet from which these parts are formed being bent in the manner shown to afiord a recess 3 for the upper edge of the separate part which affords the other side of the base, the parts being riveted together, as indicated at 00.

It has been usual hitherto to construct metallic crest-tiling of an integral sheet of thin galvanized iron doubled longitudinally at the center to afiord the upper portion, which thus comprises two layers of the metal, which are fastened together by rivets, and the base portion formed by spreading the layers apart to cause them to diverge at suitable angles. The upperportion is then cut or punched to give to it a pleasing design. Crest-tilin g thus constructed when in use permits water raining upon it to lodge between the layers alter-ding the upper portion, thus causing the metal to rust in a comparatively short time. It also permits the water to lodge between the tiling and ridge-board of the roof, thus tending to rot the latter.

My improved crest-tiling, having its upper portion of one thickness of metal, is free from this obj ection, and is consequently more durable. Moreover, the pattern of its ornamentation may be such, as shown in Fig. 2, as to permit the adjacent upper edges of two tiles to be stamped out of a sheet by a single operation and without waste of material.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. An ornamental crest-tile for the ridges of roofs, substantially as described, having its upper or ornamental portion A and one side of its flaring base B formed of a single integral layer or thickness of sheet metal, and having the other side of its base of a separate sheet of metal secured at one edge at the j unction of the upper and base portions of the other part, and a shoulder provided in either part at the joint to protect the joint from rain, substantially as set forth.

2. An ornamental crest-tile for the ridges side of its base of a separate sheet of metal of roofs,"snbstantially as described; having its secured at one edge in the recess 8, substanupper or ornamental portion A and one side tially as set forth.
