contractor changed my ridge vent system

Posted by Charlie on September 20th, 2001 06:20 PM

Contractor just replaced the roofing on the back
of my house, and in the process he removed the
original metal ridge vent and replaced it with
strip of mesh material (like a dobie pad). He
then shingled over this along the ridge, closing
off the front of the mesh material by putting the
ridge shingles down tight against the lower courses,
but he let the material stick out at the back so
there is still some ventilation. It feels to me
as though I've lost some of th ridge ventilation
in the process, and am concerned. How does this ridge
ventilation system compare with the metal ridge vents
I'm familiar with?

Thanks so much for any prompt advice.
