Application filed November 16, 1921.

In the application ofroofing material to buildings it is sometimes desirable to apply the footing in panels or strips of contrasting colors.- lhis invention relates to a method by which this panel eiiect may be produced readily with strip Shingles such as are often constructed of felt impregnatec with water or fireproofing material such as asphalt, either with-or without-a surfacing of ground slate.

Strip shingles as ordinarily constructed are provided with narrow spaced slots extrom one edge to form tabs which simulate the lower ends of adjacent shingles of .a course in appearance. Should adjacent courses of contrasting colors be laid in. the usual manner the slots being staggered, the color of the lower course'otdhingles would appear through the slots of the upper course, this causing the color of themppler course to be broken up by streaks of the color of the lower course. To avoid this breaking up of the solid color of the panel a continuous unslotted strip or a shinglestrip breaking joints therewith and of the same color is placed beneath the each panel showing between the tabs' the same as that of the panel. It will be noted that this underlying strip is of differ ent edge contour than the superposed rooting material. If desired an increase shadow effect between the panels may be produced by employing for the lower strip underlying the lowest course of each panel, a strip of a shade somewhat darker than. that of the panel and permitting it to project somewhat below the lower. edge of the tabs of the overlying course.

A pleasing shadow effect may also be produced in a roof of a single color bylaying a strip of the same or lower course of skipping intermediate courses, the' lower edge of the strip either being in alinement with the ends of the tabsot the overlying course, or projecting slightly below accord- For a more complete u derstanding of this invention together with further advantageous details more especially relative to of the various courses, refersuch shingles of.

ence may be liad to the accompanying drawings in which Figure 1 is a plan of a strip shingle. Figure 2 is a plan of a roofing strip which may beused to underlie a course of shingles, Figure 3 is a planof a section of roofing I laid accor-ding'to one embodiment of this invention.

Figure 4: is a similar view showing a method by which the shadow effect may be increased.

Figure-5 is a view showing a manner of em gles in place of the roo shown in Figure 2.

Referrin to Figure 1 each strip shingle as ordinarily constructed comprises a strip of roofing material as 1. having a series of spaced substantially rectangular slots 2 extending upwardly from its loweredge'to form tabs 3' which simulate the appearance of the butts of ordinary shingles when the strip is laid. .At the ends of each stripare formed cutouts 41., the width of which is half the width of a slot so that when the ends of adjacent similar to Fig ure 3 but loying strip shinng strips such as unbroken.

as laid. in superposed courses, the lower strip being red, the next strip green, thenext stripblue black, the next red, the'next green Should these strips be laid in strips are placed together the Referring to Figure 3 the strips are shown the usual'manner with the slots 2 staggered in the adjacent. courses at is evident that through the slots of the green course the red shingles beneath would appear, and that similarly through the slots of the blue black the greenv of the lower course would appear, and through the. slots of the red the blue black of the underlying course would appear, this breaking up the solid color of each strip. In order of roofing material of. a width sufficient to bridge the the overlying course may be placed beneath the lower edge of each course where a change in color is made. For example, Figure 3 a red strip 5 is-placedheneath the lower edge of the course of red shingles thus showing red through the slots thereof, a green strip 6 is'placed below'the course of green. shingles to show green through the slots and of the same color as,

as shown. n

to avoid this a strip 7 slots thereof, and a blue black strip 7k is eral adjacent courses may be of the same color asshown in Figured. In this case it is only necessary to employ the additional roofing strip rbeneath the lowest course of what differentsuch as the overlying course hances t I courses only, omitting the strip under the tion is shown in which each group of {thesame color, since above this lower course the color appearing through the the same as that of the course-.

.In Figure 4, however, a: slight modificathe strips ofroofing.

material 8 are'preferably of'a shade-some darker than that 01 and the, lower, edge thereof pro ects somewhat" below the edge of this course.

slots ap earsof a darker shade and ene shadow'efiect giving an appearance of, increased thickness to the-"course. This effect is hightened by permitting-the "underlying strip' to "project slightly below the lower edge ofthe course less'than the length of the shinglelbutts exposed to (the weather but throughout their entire extents. This effect is sometimes desirable When a roof ofa single. coloris-employed, it being sometimesdesirable to place a strip beneath each course, in which case each course ap pears to be of increased thickness, or it may e desirable to use this strip -u'nder certain intermediate courses, this producing a panel effect to the roof in a single color.

In Figure 5 is shown a slight further modification in which insteadof using the uncut strips such as 5, 6, 7, and 'S'strip roofm shingles. may be employed for the underlying material. It is essential, however, that t e slots therein should break joints with those of the overlyin courses. In order to insurethis it may e desirable to invert the underlying strip shingle as shown at 9 in Figure 5 so that the slots as at 2' there n may underlie the solid portion of the overlying strip. Such'a construction elim inatcs the necessity of-using roofing mate-Q rial in two different forms and in some'cases is preferable on that account since the strips may be, used interchangeably as courses in the roof or as underlying strips. These reversely positioned strips maybe positioned, ifdesired, either under each of the courses or'skipping several courses andmay, if desired, be arranged according to color, as has been above described in connectlon with the strips 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Having thus described certain embodiments of this invention it should be evident blue black through the slots in. this figure adjacent of strip. shingles, "slots, extendin edge, and roo projetingbeloiv slots of-an.ovei -lying course is and projecting below lVhen the strips are laid in this fashion the color showing between the;
