DOESN'T that sound as if it ought to be the most dura
ble roofing ever known? And it is. If it were practical
to cover your roofs with sheet steel you wouldn't have a
longer lasting, a tougher or a better eather resister than
VULCANIT E ROOFING. And the be* of it is you
begin saving money the moment you buy it. It's cheaper
than the old style roofings and it is so easy to lay that one
of your children could do the job. It makes your roofs
look neat and attractive it protects your buildings from
fire, and it is a positive proof against
the severest assault of the sun, wind, j-r
ram or snow. Architects all over j^||j|j|B
the country are recommending
VULCANITE as superior to all I
other roofings. Come in and let us
shtnu you a sample, If you buy,
you'll always thank us.
