Taking ridge ventilation to a new level of performance, CertainTeed® Ridge Vent installs on the peak of the roof, allowing exhaust ventilation along the entire ridge, end-to-end. With a 12" width, matching shingles can be installed over the vent, allowing the vent to appear almost invisible from the ground. Intake vents must be installed to provide proper airflow.
