another roofing question

5 posts in this topic

in a previous post i asked about a gazebo roof, same roof

different question. this is a 6 sided roof, each panel is

8 foot at the bottom and then of course goes to a point.

question is: what is the minimum width i can go on the ridge

caps? i will be cutting 3 tab shingles. if i use a full tab

it looks way to big in comparison to the roof.

thanks in advance

Most ridge cap for wood shingle roofs measure 4" each way. You should be safe at that. As long as you cover the ridge, it should work.

Minimum width for what? grin I'll tell you this. A gazeebo is not a residential habitable area. It has no codes to go by for the roof. A ridge cap can be as big or small as you want it to be. You could use a piece of metal that covers 1" on each side if you want to. I would cut the 3tabs in half and put 3 inches on each side. That normally looks the best.
