Hi, I’m Mark Donovan from homeeditionplus.com and today what you’re looking at is a ridge vent. A ridge vent system works in conjunction with your socket vent to provide a total attic ventilation system. The ridge vent extends basically the entire length of the ridge of your roofline. Basically when the carpenter sheets the roof with a plywood or LSV type of sheeting, he leaves about one inch gap on either side of the peak for hot air to basically come out of the top of the attic or your roof line. The ridge gap or should I say the ridge vent is used to allow that air to still come out while protecting the roof from having any type of rain water to penetrate in the attic area.
Basically, a couple types of ridge vent material. There’s standard aluminum type of ridge vent, basically just nails down in place with roofing nails and then you put some roofing sealant over the top of the nails. That type of ridge vent typically doesn’t hold up well, too well in windy weather conditions from personal experience. What's used more often today is a plastic honey comb type of ridge net material that is nailed down with like three inch galvanized nails and then roof shingle tabs are installed over the ridge vent material nailed into place.
As you see with this ridge vent, only the very end of the ridge vent are the nails exposed and where those nails are exposed, the sealant is put over the nail to prevent any type of water leak into the roof.
So those are the basics of a ridge vent system, if you have other home improvement questions visit us at homeeditionplus.com today.
