Ridge Cap Shingles

A protective over the peak shingle will insure reliable protection at the highest-stress areas of your roof (the hips and ridges). The ridge cap shingles will also provide a higher-quality and more cost-effective alternative to using cut-up strip shingles as your ridge cap.

Other advantages of using ridge-cap shingles opposed to modifying 3-tab asphalt shingles:

  1. Safety. Pre-cut reduces injury to your hands and fingers.
  2. Convenience. Pre-cut ridge caps will save you time and ensure a proper fit without worrying about cutting mistakes.
  3. Durability. Standard single ply shingles are more likely to crack when folded over the peak since they are thinner.
  4. Better Adherence. An adhesive near the end of the ridge-cap shingles helps to keep in place during heavy winds.
  5. Thicker. The thickness of the nailing area helps prevent nail hole tearing. There are two types of ridgecap shingles that we offer:
