Ridge cap shingles
Ridge cap shingles are applied beginning at the bottom of the hip or the ridge opposite the direction of the prevailing winds. 4 nails per ridge cap shingle are used, 2 on each side, 1" from the edge so succeeding shingles conceal nail heads.
There are 2 kinds of ridge cap shingles, namely, regular and high profile ridge cap shingles.
- REGULAR RIDGE CAP:
Consists of single layer cut-up strip shingles.
- HIGH PROFILE RIDGE CAP:
Ready made, double layered shingles that ensures multi-layer protection at the highest stress areas of the roof (the hips and ridges). Accentuates the natural beauty of your new shingle roof providing the look of thick wood shakes.
