What Covers the Ridge of the Roof?
A ridged roof may be covered by ridge roof capping. When using ridge caps, roof ridges are covered in specially shaped triangular tiles.
The joins of the ridge of roof slopes are then covered to provide properties resistant to most weather conditions.
Ridges in roofing can be vulnerable to poor conditions of weather, providing leaks to the interior of the roof which would require maintenance. When using ridge caps, roof longevity is achieved, as ridge capping covers ensure your whole roof is watertight.
It is important to maintain the condition of your ridge roof capping, however. If a crack appears in the capping, water can filter through to the ridge and the interior roof. Tough weather conditions can exasperate this damage and wear down the ridge roof capping.
Regular investigation of ridge capping should be done every year. Spotting a crack in the capping early can result in easy maintenance before any damage is done to the roof.
