I am back again. The roofer installed the ‘ridge vent’ simply by cutting a ridge at the top (3-4 inches) and laying the thick ‘plastic mesh’ on the opening. (Sorry I don’t know what the mesh/ brillo-like filter material is called).
I do not see a plastic vent. And now that I am looking at pictures from a recent post on this site, my question is "Is the way my roofer installed a ‘vent’ correct/acceptable?"
Can you have a ridge vent, with no physical vent… just the vent material.
Also, at the ‘butt-ends’ of the ridge, there is no opening.The shingles are completely capping the roof… NO Vent.
Therefore, the only ventilation I can see this getting is from the the ridge shingles which seem to bee sitting SLIGHTLY higher, and not as ‘tacked down’ as the other roof shingles. Comments???
You guys are GREAT. Thanks for taking the time to help. .
