This invention relates to a covering for laying contrast between said surface‘ and that of the like

The invention relates more particularly to a

It is also an object of the invention to provide
30 a. cover sheet carrying a simulation of -a plurality
of courses of masonry which will cover a relatively
large amount of the surface of the structure to be
covered and therefore, while being easy to lay,
will also be less expensive than when laying in

Moreover, when the covering sheets are of such
form as to be adapted for laying in overlapping

will be provided by the underlying surface ex;

In order to provide said character of the mor

of the remainder beyond said simulated masonry

character of surface which will simulate the
