COPPER 



Copper — the name alone inculcates on one's mind a 
metal of almost everlasting durableness — a 
metal that has been in common use among the 
more civilized nations since the earliest dawn 
of history. 

Copper — a metal that is impervious to the actions of 
the elements — a metal whose appearance im- 
proves with its years of service. 

What could add more to the value and attractive- 
ness of a building than a Copper Shingle or 
Spanish Tile roof in its aged color? 




COPPER 



Copper — the name alone inculcates on one's mind a 
metal of almost everlasting durableness — a 
metal that has been in common use among the 
more civilized nations since the earliest dawn 
of history. 

Coppe?~ — a metal that is impervious to the actions of 
the elements — a metal whose appearance im- 
proves with its years of service. 

What could add more to the value and attractive- 
ness of a building than a Copper Shingle or 
Spanish Tile roof in its aged color? 




HE use of Copper for roofing has been 
| restricted by the assumption that on 
account of its cost, being higher than 
that of numerous other materials used 
for roofing, a copper roof was practically a luxury 
and too expensive for ordinary use. That copper 
is the ideal roof covering from every view-point 
has always been recognized. 

Careful and exhaustive investigation has 
proved that copper of the highest grade converted 
into a properly constructed Shingle or Tile can 
be made available to the Home Builder at a cost, 
in many cases, less than that for slate or clay-tile. 
To consummate this result has been the aim of 
two experienced and reliable factors: 

Detroit Copper & Brass Rolling Mills, 
Detroit, Michigan, 

for upwards of forty years one of the largest and 
most prominent manufacturers of Sheet Copper, 
produce and furnish sheets of the most suitable 
character from copper of the highest grades 
procurable, thus insuring metal of the finest 
quality. 

The Edwards Manufacturing Company, 
Cincinnati, Ohio, 

one of the oldest and largest manufacturers of 
Sheet Metal Roofing, convert this sheet cop- 
per into varied designs of Shingles and Tile, 
none of which are experimental; designs which 
are properly constructed in every respect and 
are known and have been in use and stood the 
test for many years, giving entire satisfaction 
and living up to every claim advanced for them, 
Contrary to general belief/copper is not 
expensive. It may appear expensive if the firsi 
cost be the only consideration. Measuring 1 







cost per years of service it is the cheapest of all 
roof coverings. The initial cost is naturally 
higher than that of some other materials used 
for roofing, but the first cost is the only cost 
of a roof of "Edwards" Patented Interlocking 
Copper Shingles and Copper Tile. There are 
no up-keep costs, no repairing, painting or 
replacing. The elements have no effect upon 
them only changing their color to a beautiful 
copperas green. They add distinction to any 
structure with a charm and beauty that endures. 
This roof will outlast the structure it beautifies 
and protects. 

It is worthy of comment that when the 
structure is finally razed the copper roof will 
have a salvage value of in the neighborhood of 
one-third of its cost. 

In offering our Shingles and Spanish Tiles of 
Copper we place within your reach the longest- 
lasting as well as most attractive appearing roof 
covering of the present day, they being suitable 
for any type of building that has roof pitch of 
one-fourth or greater. 

Owing to their moderate weight, which ranges 
from 80 to 175 pounds to the square, dependent 
on the style, no special construction nor roof- 
bracing is required. 

Their application is very simple and 
surprisingly rapid. Each Shingle and Spanish 
Tile is equipped with an interlocking device, 
which device provides for the expansion and 
contraction of the metal during climatic changes, 
for the covering of the nails and nail holes and 
reduces the cost of application to a minimum. 

To harmonize with the Shingles and Spanish 
Tile we manufacture suitable trimmings which 
help considerably in adding to the beauty of the 
roof, and their use is recommended. 




REALIZING THE NEED FOR SHINGLES WITH DESIGNS TO CONFORM WITH THE VARIOUS ORDERS 

OF ARCHITECTURE WE MANUFACTURE A WIDE SELECTION OF PATTERNS WHICH PERMIT OF 

AN EVERLASTING COPPER SHINGLE ROOF ON A BUILDING OF ANY PERIOD. 



a 



Roman' Copper Shingles 



Size 10 x 14 inches 




Here is a decided novelty — a 
pattern that will enhance the 
appearance of any building. 

As its name implies, tiles of 
this pattern helped to make the 
Roman villages of twenty cen- 
turies ago the marvels of beauty 
that they were. 

The deep depressions of the 
design form a large dead air 
space under each shingle, more 
effectually keeping out the heat 
of summer and the cold of 
winter. 

The Edwards Interlocking 
Device makes joints at both 
ends and sides so firm and secure 
that water positively can not 
work in and wind can not work 
them loose. 





A COPPER SHINGLE OR SPANISH TILE ROOF IS AN INVESTMENT AND NOT AN EXPENSE. 



"French Slate" Copper Shingles 



Size 10 x 14 inches 



^^^B 


f 1 

■WHbm 





A roof of "FRENCH 
SLATE" copper shingles will 
lend charm and dignity to any 
dwelling. 

The design was modelled by 
our artist after a careful study of 
roofs in France and other Euro- 
pean countries. 

There is only one kind of a 
roof that will endure indefinitely 
and this one kind is copper 
which endurance with pleasing 
appearance makes our 
"FRENCH SLATE" Copper 
shingles a very popular roof 
covering. 

Our ornamental fixtures such 
as ridge and hip finish and finials 
harmonize very well with this 
pattern. 





A ROOF OF COPPER SHINGLES OR SPANISH TILE WILL LOWER THE COST OF INSURANCE. 



a 



Queen Anne" Copper Shingles 



Size 10 x 14 inches 




The chaste beauty of this de- 
sign makes the "QUEEN 
ANNE" design shingle roof one 
of eye-catching charm. 

The embossing is deep and 
clean cut, producing, when laid, 
a very striking effect. 

This deep embossing also al- 
lows free circulation of the air, 
which is a great aid in keeping 
the roof cool in summer. 

An Edwards Copper shingle 
roof is the cheapest roof cover- 
ing — measuring the cost per 
years of service. Replacements 
are never necessary for they 
cannot freeze nor crack and will 
outlast the building to which 
they are applied. 





COPPER SHINGLES AND SPANISH TILE ARE ABSOLUTELY FIRE-PROOF. 



a 



Rookwood" Copper Shingles 



Size 10 x 14 inches 




_ The "ROOKWOOD" is quite 
similar in design to the "Queen 
Anne" Shingle and we recom- 
mend either pattern where orna- 
mentation or a fine architectural 
effect is desired. 

The roof is an important de- 
termining factor in the beauty of 
a home and therefore deserves 
every consideration, for an un- 
attractive roof on an otherwise 
fine looking house mars the en- 
tire effect. 

On the other hand, oftentimes, 
an attractive roof is the making 
of some of our medium priced 
houses whose lines otherwise 
would be so plain as to become 
monotonous to the eye. 

Our "ROOKWOOD" shingles 
are very much in demand on 
buildings of the Colonial period 
as they are in keeping with this 
order.

Spanish Tile of Copper 




Just glance at the above picture and see if you do not agree that it would be 
exceedingly difficult, if not, indeed, impossible, to construct a more beautiful, more 
artistic roof than this. Notice how sharply the moulding of each individual tile 
is defined and how harmoniously the entire roof blends with the general outlines 
of the building. 

The history of the Spanish Tile is an interesting one. Centuries ago when 
the Moors were driven out of Spain they left behind them the art of making beau- 
tiful earthenware roofing tiles that lend such charm to many of the ancient build- 
ings still standing in that historic country. 

Thousands of people have admired these decorative, harmonious earthenware 
Spanish Tiles, and wished to have their roofs similarly covered, but on account 
of their evident disadvantages have chosen a more practicable, though less beau- 
tiful, style of roof. 

Their great weight, liability to breakage and displacement, with consequent 
leakage, and their high cost have kept them from common use. 

We have produced in COPPER an exact reproduction of these beautiful 
Spanish Tiles and can furnish them at much less cost than the earthenware tiles. 
This enables you to enjoy all the beauty, ornament and advantages, without 
danger and disadvantages, and at a strikingly low cost. 



IN OUR SPANISH TILES OF COPPER THE BEAUTIFYING POWERS OF THE MOORS HAVE BECOME 
THE PROPERTY OF THE PRACTICAL TWENTIETH CENTURY. 



Each piece of Tile, as well as every fixture, is an exact piece of workmanship 
and absolutely perfect, so that the application of a SPANISH TILE ROOF 
OF COPPER is very simple, and, when completed, positively watertight.

"PERFECT" VALLEY 
For Tile Roofs 

The particular advantage in 
using this style valley is that 
the bead acts as a gutter for any 
water that might possibly back 
up under the tile and carries off 
same into gutter at eaves, 
thereby insuring you a perfect 
watertight roof. This is why 
we call it the "Perfect" Valley. 




Method of Locking Valley Tile 

into Valley. 

Valleys as a rule are difficult to cut, but 
by using our right and left valley tile, and 
cutting along dotted line (see illustration) 
and bending tile into the lock of our "Perfect" 
Valley, this difficulty is done away with.

Directions for Applying Spanish Tile of Copper 



Line roof up and down and crosswise as shown above, keeping perpendicular lines at right angles 
with eave line. 

Commence starting course at extreme left of roof, keeping bottom of tile true to eave line and 
true to perpendicular lines. 

Do not let tile project over eaves. Lay 
next course lapping over first course, just enough 
to cover storm ribs on upper part of tile. 

Put 2x4 strips on hips and ridge and 
cut tiles to butt up against 2x4. 
Then apply the hip or ridge flashing 
to which the hip and ridge tile are 
fastened with cleats. In working 
valleys, see that closed ends are 
kept in line, then lock your field 
tile to valley tile; 
that is, in starting. 

In finishing, lock 
your valley tile to the 
field tile, watching to 
keep closed ends in 
line.
