ridge vent opening cut too big


What did you use for the center to center spacing for the rafters?
It should have been 24 or 16".

I'm not 100% but rafters are spaced 23" in between center to center, but the spacing between first and second, and last and one before is 24 1/2". Call me newbie

Sheathing does not keep water out, tar paper and shingles keep water out.
Sheathing is never ever ran vertical. It would take away all the sheath streingth of the roof.

Lowes and Home Depot both have H clips. Make sure to buy the right size.
