Ridge vent question


Hello from Beavercreek, Ohio.
Can anyone recommend a good ridge vent brand for easy installation/looks?
I have 92 feet to install on my roof.
Thanks, Splinters1

Ridge vent question


Are you installing shingles, etc, or just trying to install a ridge vent? There are many issues you may need to address that will help the vent "work" as it should. I just want to make sure I respond with good information.

I would suggest either ShingleVent II or GAF Snow Country. Both are very effective and designed to perform well.

Look into Lomanco venting. They have a few different ridge vents available.

Thanks for the reply...I have proper soffit venting and have roof vents. The roof shingles are "curling" due to the heat. I would like to correct the ventilation by installing ridge vents and closing off the existing roof vents. I'm just installing ridge vents and shingling over them. Any suggestions would be appreciated
