I just had a new roof put on with GAF asphalt shingles. For the ridge
caps, the roofers used a high profile shingle that is folded under at
one edge, giving it a thicker appearance. I was told that this give
the appearance more like wood shingles, and this was a more high end
treatment. All the rest of the homes in my neighbhorhood that have
new roofs have ridgecaps that lay very flush to the surface, and this
looks tighter and more refined to me. Can anyone comment on these two
types of treatments? I was thinking that the product on my roof,
because it is thcker, will warp or turn up on an edge more easily. I
have never seen this type of product before.
I don't think that the contract covered the exact ridge cap product.
And even if it had, it would be hard to know what the product looked
like just from the item number or description. I have never had a
roof put on before. I didn't know the questions to ask. Who knew
that what went on my roof was at the end of the bell curve, not in the
middle like every other roof in my neighborhood.
So, if anyone can read my OP and has an answer instead of a flame,
You didn't know what questions to ask. Now you ask questions after the
fact, and expect not to get flamed.
Screw you, you don't have any say who can reply to your post.
Ask your contractor instead of asking people Worldwide.
