Ridge caps are building materials placed along the ridge line of a sloped roof. Traditionally gabled roofs on a home are made up of two sloped sides that intersect in the middle. That intersecting point between the two sides is known as the ridge line. A ridge cap fits on top of the join between these two edges to help keep out the rain out of your home. It also helps tie together the look of the roof by creating a well-sealed joint along the two sides.
Purposing ridge caps for specific functions is possible. In most cases, ridge cap vents are baffled meaning they're patterned to allow heat to escape from the roof. They often feature a V-shape that fits over the ridge while sitting just above the surface of the roof. They often slope downward to prevent rain from getting stuck in the vents and allowing moisture to penetrate the mortar that holds the ridge caps together. The second function of this baffled pattern is to help minimise the effect of high-speed winds preventing dirt and leaves from entering your home. You might also have mesh installed over the vents to prevent pests from settling in the roof or entering your home.
