Hip & Ridges w/Architectural Shingles


Hey guys - got a quick question about hips/ridges using architectural shingles. Would someone kindly explain why we use special shingles for the hips/ridges in an architectural-shingle application. And what would be the downside to using the same technique as done w/flat-shingles?

The specialty H & R cap shingles usually are made thicker than 3-tabs cut into 1/3. They sometimes have different shadow line accents to look more distinct.

If the color is exactly the same from the architectural shingle being used and a 3-tab color by the same manufacturer, you can use the 3-tabs as the cap instead.

The 3-tabs have the asphalt sealant strip, while the architectural specialty shingles do not. Why??? I don't know. It would make more sense if they did.

I believe the architectural caps to not have the sealant strip due to increased ridgidity. This would only apply to GAF Timbertex since that is the only arch. ridge cap I have ever used. They are multi-plied.

I prefer the 3 tab cap with the sealant and extra nailing,I feel it is stronger against the wind,and water intrusion
