Copper Ridge Roll
The traditional finish for a
Before high tech caulking and silicone, the
traditional finish for a slate roof ridge was rolled copper or galvanized.
Held in place with concealed fasteners, this provided a closure with no exposed
fasteners to protect the top seam of the roof. The advantages are as
No exposed fasteners
Traditional, high quality look and finish
Will not wear out like caulking/ice and water
Copper ions will prevent mold/moss from
growing on the roof
Can be made in custom sizes for different
roof pitch and ridge beam width
Custom designs to appeal to customers
aesthetic taste & needs
Proper design can serve as a roof ventilation
|We can also fabricate ridge caps and
ridge roll out of galvanized. We recommend using at least 26 ga or
thicker material for this application.
Traditionally galvanized ridge rolls and flashings were painted with terne.
Terne was originally 80% lead and 20% tin, and could last approximately 80
years exposed. Today terne is still available, but is 50% zinc and 50%
Sometimes customers want to use galvanized for cost
savings, or to match existing galvanized gutters in place at the house.
|Some Examples of Reasons for a
Custom Copper Ridge Roll
- Wood shingle roof with a ridge vent. Customer
did not like the look of the tapersawns raised over the ridge vent
- Wide ridge pole on a shingle roof where standard
hip and ridge will not cover properly
- Slate roof where customer wanted a lower profile
ridge than the standard copper ridge rolls
- Steep roof pitch or very low roof pitch which
requires custom angles

WHAT LENGTHS SHOULD I ORDER?
| The standard length of ridge rolls
is 10 feet long, which we can crate and ship to you. However, we can
make these in 4 ft long pieces and provide you with splice plates for the
seams. This will allow us to ship the copper ridge roll to you
via ground shipping service (UPS or Fed Ex), and might make the trips up the
ladder a bit easier for you....especially on a windy day.
