Installation Instructions

  1. Remove ridge cap shingles along entire length of roof.
  2. a. Measure 1” from ridge peak on each side of ridge. For ridge board construction measure 1 3⁄4” on each side of ridge.
    b. Snap chalk line along entire length of ridge.
    c. Cut opening in sheathing along ridge. DO NOT CUT through roof trusses or ridge board.
    d. Remove sheathing to create slot.
    e. Leave a minimum of 12” of sheathing closed at each end of ridge.
  3. Tack one end of Roof Saver® ridge vent, with netting side down, over the slot to hold in place at one end of the ridge. Unroll entire length of vent, pull to remove sags and tack in place so vent is snug and centered over slot. If more than one piece of Roof Saver® is needed, simply butt the multiple pieces together and tack in place with a nail.
  4. Install ridge cap shingles directly over Roof Saver®. Use galvanized roofing nails included in package to secure in place. When properly installed, Roof Saver® fills the 3⁄4” space between the underside of the cap shingle and the top surface of the roof shingles. Do NOT drive nails through shingle.

Cut slots along the ridge to within 12 inches of each side of the ridge intersections. – First install Roof Saver along the entire long run of the ridge.

Then install Roof Saver along the short run of the ridge so the ridge vent butts up against the Roof Saver already installed on the long run.
