OK to put ridge vent on garage
 
Is it ok to put ridge vents over the garage? It's an open garage from the inside.

no problem putting in the vents. their purpose is to circulate the air away from the decking of the roof that overheats the shingles causing premature wear. with the garage being open below, it isn't as big as a concern as a closed attic space would be but it won't hurt and adds appeal and dimension on the outside.

Only if you don't need to heat it occasionally.

coldest it gets around here is 30 degrees once or twice a year in the middle of the night during the winter
