What is a “Ridge Vent”

What is a ridge vent?  As Wikipedia explains, “A ridge vent is a type of vent installed at the peak of a sloped roof which allows warm, humid air to escape a building’s attic. Ridge vents are most common on shingled residential buildings.”

If you have a question or for more information on ridge vents and how to make it work as effective as possible, please contact us at DiGiorgi Roofing & Siding at our website and your question might be next on our Q&A video series!
