Hi, I built my garage and couldn’t find a contractor to shingle it before winter… So I decided to do it myself. Now I’m writing to the experts on a forum - go figure.
The roof pitch is 10/12 with 2 doghouse dormers with the same pitch. My problem is that I sheeted it with the intention of using ridge vents (cutting 1" of sheathing from the ridge line). The reason for ridge vents is that I didn’t like how the regular vents look, as my house is butchered with them.
My question is: Can I use ridge venting on the dormers tying into the main roof? Its the low profile stuff, 3/8" thick maybe. I figured I would run it up the main roof (6" maybe) with my cap shingles.
Comments/suggestions? Help please.
