With the above and other ends in View the in
vention is more fully disclosed with reference to
the accompanying drawing, in which

Referring to the drawing by character of ref
erence the numeral 50 designates a substantially
4O rectangular metallic shingle formed at one end
4 with a downturned flange 5I for abutment by one
end of a sheet of insulating and sound deadening
material 54 which may be bonded or otherwise
vide for insulation as to heat and Coldwan re- ` Äwithf inwardly directly elongated extended por
spect to both tile and metal .types of'rooñng ele-V tions 59 which seat in the `grooves 52 to resiliently
ments, and in the case of metal roofing elements hold‘the shingles in place. ‘
In mounting the shingles on the roof it is only 15
to provide for insulation as to sound.

suitably secured to the underside of the metallic
shingle. The shingle 50 may be formed of sheet
metal and is provided with a pair of downturned
spaced resilient iianges 52 which are formed out
` of the shingle 'and extend longitudinally thereof,
5o the flanges 52 being formed along their lower
edges with outwardly facing grooves or elon
gated sockets 53. The insulating or sound dead
ening material 54, which may be tar paper or
other suitable material is pierced by the depend
55‘ing flanges 52, the insulating material being in
shingle between the upturned iianges 58 of a
holder and rpress the shingle into place or until
'the extended portion 59 snaps into the grooves 52
`of the holder.
- In order to avoid metallic contact between ad--
jacent or overlapping shingles the insulating ma
terial 54 extends below or beyond the lower edges
of the abutment flange 5I asV shown in Fig.`> 5.
Also the holders 55 are relatively spaced, such 25
that the shingles 50 overlap, the upper overlap
‘ping end portions of the shingles being pressed
against the lower shingle end portion by the `re
silient or tensioned holders.
lnïFig. 4 there is illustrated in perspective a 30
`fragment of a` channel shaped retainer'fora tile
rooñng element (not shown) the retainer having
means providing an abutment for preventing
endwise movement of the tile with respect to the
channel after the tile have been placed therein. 35
The channel is generally designated by the nu
meral 65 and has a corrugated web portion 66
to which a bar 61 is welded to extend. crosswise
thereof. Where metallic roofing structures are
encountered, the retainer 65 may be welded Yor 40
be otherwise suitably secured thereto.
Although specific embodiments of the inven
tion have been illustrated and described it will
be understood that various changes may be made
within the scope of the appended claims without 45
departing from the spirit of the invention and
such changes are contemplated.
What I claim is:
1. A roofing element comprising a sheet metal
body and a composition body, said metal body 50
having a pair of spaced apart arms extending .
through said composition body, said arms having
retainer receiving means.
2. A rooiing element comprising a sheet metal
body, a composition body, said metal body hav- 55
ingone end of said composition body, and a pair
of arms integral with said metal body and pro
jecting through said composition body, said arms
metal, a metal channel comprised of resiliently
yieldable side walls united by an integral web,
said side walls having retainers thereon, said
channel having its web welded to said metal sup
having retainer receiving portions in their outer
porting structure, metal roofing elements and
resiliently yieldable elements integral with said
ing one end extended over and partially cover
3. A roof composed of roofing elements laid in
overlapping relation with one edge and a portion
of the upper surface of each element exposed,
10 each rooñng element comprising a Wear resist
ing fire-proof surface body, and a composition
insulating body secured- to the under surface
thereof, the surface body being extended over a
portion of the exposed end of each roofing ele
rooñng elements, said resiliently yieldable ele
ments being received between the walls of said
channel and being compressed thereby to main
tain them in engagement with the retainers there
on and supporting said rooñng elements with one
overlapping another.
7. A roof comprising a supporting structure ex
tending at an angle relative to a horizontal plane,
a plurality of pairs of yieldably spaced apart ele
being spaced slightly from the lower surface of ments attached to said supporting structure,
the insulating body whereby it protects thema »roofing elements, resiliently compressible means

roofing elements received in and compressed by
elements and through the inter-engagement of „ .
said retainer means and retained therein by the
the several overlapped rooñng elements of each
series holding the entire series against sliding
8. In combination, a channel member having
resiliently yieldable side walls, lengthwise tapered ¿J
friction induced through compression thereof,
said retainer means and last named means sup

roofing elements, and resiliently compressible
projecting portions on said rooñng elements, said
projecting portions extending between and com
pressed by said resiliently yieldable side walls and
frictionally engaged therewith as a result of com 35
pression thereof to support said roofing elements
with the thicker end overlapping the thinner end
of the next adjacent rooñng element.
9. In combination, a channel member having
side walls, rooñng elements, said roofing elements 40
comprising sheet metal outer layers and com
position inner layers, resiliently compressible pro
jecting portions integral with the sheet metal
and projecting through the composition layers,
