    Roofing experts?


    The ridge on my roof is all chewed up, and I would swear that this is a new thing. Looks like a cat has been clawing at it (obviously I know thatís not what happened). Rest of the roof is good. No leaks. Never seen any birds or squirrels up there.

    Couple pics attached. Looks worse in person. I havenít gone up there yet.

    How old is the roof? Looks like the caps over the ridge vent are shot. Iíve been seeing caps failing before the roof itself a lot on roofs with ridge vents. All the heat is coming out of those vents exposing them to much more heat than the rest of the roof. Tried and proven
    traditional soffit to gable vents is still the best option if you can.

    Thanks. I suspect you’re right. The roof is about 15 years old.

    My neighbor is a roofer, but I’ve been having a hard time bumping into him.
