The Benefits of Ridge Shingles
Ridge shingles are a necessary component of a roof. They are the pieces that cover the sloping shingles where the two sides of your roof meet at the peak. They allow for roof ventilation in order to keep decay and rot from developing. In addition, these ridge caps
and ridge shingles will help keep rodents and other pests from making homes in your roof.
There are several different types of ridge shingling that increase ventilation to a home. First of all, there is a ridge vent made out of a coarse and spongy strip of material that rests just under the final layer of the roof shingles that rest along the ridge of the peak of the roof. The nature of this material allows for increased airflow and circulation.
Sheathing boards are installed in order to allow for air to leave the ridge vents. The air that flows out of the ridge vent is circulated amongst the hollow spaces between the roof and its rafters. Soffits are an important part of this ventilation system. A soffit is the vertical piece that covers the underside of the roof that extends past the building. This covering will also prevent decay and rot from attacking your roof, as well as stop potential animals from entering your home. In addition, homes are further protected from mould when the roof has a proper ventilation system.
Ridging shingles can also be viewed as the final touch upon your entire house. The ends of the roof are covered and no longer exposed, completing the look of your entire home.
