A vented ridge cap is a type of roofing component that is used to cover the ridge of a roof. It is designed to allow air to flow through the roof at the ridge, which helps to ventilate the attic space and reduce the risk of moisture buildup.
Vented ridge caps are often used in conjunction with metal roofing systems, as they provide a practical and attractive way to finish off the roof. They are typically made from the same material as the metal roof panels and are designed to match the profile of the panels.
To install a vented ridge cap, the roofing contractor will first measure and cut the ridge cap to fit the length of the ridge. They will then position the ridge cap on the roof, aligning it with the ridge line and securing it to the roof deck using screws or other fasteners.
It is important to ensure that the vented ridge cap is properly installed, as it plays a critical role in the overall ventilation and performance of the roof. If the ridge cap is not properly sealed or secured, it can lead to leaks and other issues with the roof.
