in Figure 1, the end portions of the strips project
beyond the right hand side edge of the board for
alternately greater and lesser distances. In the
embodiment of the invention illustrated in Fig

For example, narrow bands 2i may be surfaced
with white granules or may be left black. From
the end of this sheet narrow strips II are severed

sheet from edge to edge and are perpendicular to
the bands or stripes 20 and 2|. These strips II
are then ready to be attached in parallel stag
gered relation to a board so as to represent brick
of the board so that the lowermost strip will thus
lap the horizontal joint between the board and a
similar board in the course next below.
; The strips ll may be secured to the board I! in
any suitable or convenient manner. For ex

with hot asphalt, emulsified asphalt, or with a
Figure 4 illustrates a slightly different embodi
ment of the invention, this form consisting of a
board 30 to the face of which is attached a super
structure consisting of a series of overlapping
elongated strips 3i. These strips are each sub 15
stantially as long as the board itself, and are
laterally o?set so that an end portion of each
strip projects beyond a side edge of the board in

or pitch mixed with su?icient naphtha or similar
solvent to render it plastic and adhesive. While
this coating is in its adhesive condition, the strips
ii are applied thereto and are pressed into adhe

other suitable means may be employed to facill-_'
tate locating the strips correctly. In addition, it
may be desirable to attach the strips to the board
more securely by use of suitable fastening ele

the several strips -II are vertically spaced from
one another, leaving narrow horizontal areas ii
between successive strips having a width approxi
mately equal to that of a mortar joint. While
the adhesive coating on the board is still in its
sticky condition, I may shower the panel with
granular material, preferably of a color similar to
that of the vertical stripes it, this grit being
adapted to stick to the coating on the areas not
2. The strips 3| are preferably wider than the
strips I I so that they may have rectangular areas
32 to simulate side faces of brick, and may also
have sufficient area 33 above these rectangular
areas to permit overlap by the strip next above,
leaving a portion of the area 33 exposed to repre
sent a mortar joint. The strips ii are also
formed with areas I! at their ends,‘similar to but
slightly wider than‘the vertical mortar joints.
These strips are preferably attached to the board
by suitable fastening elements 34, the fastening 30
elements being passed through the upper portion
of each strip so as to be overlapped and pro
tected by the weather edge portion of the strip
The lower portions of these strips, except near
the ends, may be cemented or stapled to the
underlying strip. The areas of the board not
covered by the strips, as well as the areas cov
ered thereby, may be left uncoated and ungritted.
In assembling panels of this kind, the upper edges 40
of the projecting portions of the strips are in
covered by the strips ii. These grits may be
suitably rolled or otherwise pressed into partial

The strips H. which are secured to the boards

continuous sheet of roo?ng felt may be treated,

oxidized asphalt, and the application of granular

have plain edges for butt joints or rabbeted
edges as shown. To the face of this board is
attached a superstructure consisting of a single
sheet ‘I of roofing, this roofing having serrated 55
side edges to simulate the staggering of brick
courses. The sheet ‘I is preferably prepared by
surfacing the entire sheet first with light colored
granules to represent mortar, printing a brick
work pattern of rectangular areas 42 of adhesive
material on the granular surface, then applying
brick-colored granular material to the adhesive
material on the areas 42. This results in a brick
work pattern having the brick-simulating areas
standing out in relief from the areas represent
ing mortar joints. The sheet ll of roo?ng is,
as shown, laterally and vertically offset with re
lation to the board lli so that the entire serrated
edge at one endof the sheet is outside of the
contour of the board and overlaps the next ad
jacent board when applied to the side of a build
ing with other similar siding panels. The sheet
ll is also vertically offset so that its lower edge
is below the lower edge of the board. Thus the 75
