Hey all, inspector in training here. Anyone know what these are? They were on top of an asphalt shingle roof I drove past the other day. Didn’t get a good look but they obviously aren’t the usual ridge caps. Any ideas?
my guess from Ohio is that someone added those as a decorative accent…how practical it is, is impossible to tell from here…
Yeah just moved to Oklahoma and I have seen them on a few houses now. Could just be a style down here or maybe they are meant to be harder for the wind to grab or something. Wish I knew what they were called so I could look them up.
Looks like tile ridge caps.
I think Jeff may have it…
Ornamental or decorative ridge cap
I feel special… oh sooo special…
Interesting. Didn’t know you could mix and match like that. Thanks all
Welcome to our forum, Amanda!..enjoy participating.
Thanks Larry And those are neat! I will have to look into them. This chapter on roofs has made me realize how little I know so I am sure I will be back with more questions soon. I appreciate the help.
The reason to always asks questions here. The wealth of knowledge by seasoned inspectors is like grad courses form the core classes you take. Keep in mind though that you need to rely on the “professors” your most comfortable with,
Noted. Thanks Thomas.
