Thanks for the reply. I understand that the 2x4 is for attachment of the tiles. During the roofer's sales pitch to me, they stated that they would use metal beams to install the ridge tiles, not 2x4's, as the metal is superior (won't warp over time).
Based on my witnesses who saw the tile installation, no metal beams were used for the attachment of the ridge cap tiles. The tiles were attached directly to the 2x4.
