Ridge / hip caps
Hip and ridge units are pre-manufactured caps for hips and ridges made from number one grade cedar shingles. Their use makes considerable savings in construction time. Each unit is fastened together by 2 staples which allow sufficient flexibility to accommodate a range of pitches. Cappings should be laid with alternate bevels and concealed nailing. Weather exposures should be at the same gauge as the field of the roof. For additional weatherproofing install a strip of Type IF roofing felt under the capping.
