its many years of unchallenged leadership in
the roofing field is the rcsult of the economical
service that users have ahvays received from
This characteristic of economical service is
well exemplified in Barrett Multi-Sningles.
On the roof, Multi-Shingles look exactly like
individual shingles, but as they come four
shingles to a strip they cost lar less to lay.
Their rich colored mineral service, in fadeless
dark red or green, needs no painting, adds dis
tinction to even the rinest home and at the same
ttme afiords a high degree of fire protection.
With a'l these advantages, Barrett Multi
Shingles are wonderfully durable and extremely
moderate in cost.
Other popular Barrett products include metal protective paints,
roofing cements,shingle stain oil,fly spray and wood preservative.
