Hello Everyone: I am in the middle of purchasing a home. We had the home inspection done and the home inspector says that the ridge vent does not have cap shingles on the top of it and that needs to be corrected. Seller is saying it 's an aluminum ridge vent and does not need shingles on top of it. The ridge vent is over a regular asphalt shingled roof, not a metal roof.
The seller is having a roofer come over to confirm their statement. I have tried to find a roofer to visit the home for us, but because they are all so very busy, none of them are willing to go over there, even if we pay them a consult fee. So, looking for information here. Can anyone give me their professional opinion?
