What is a ridge cap?

Ridge cap is a particular shingle that was created to withstand the severe wind that blows across a roof’s ridge. A ridge cap is not only thicker than a standard shingle, but it is also pre-bent to avoid cracking when folded over the ridge. Ridge cap is made by capping/nok roll forming machine

Ridge-cap shingles cover the roof’s peak, where two angles meet and serve an important function in preventing rain and melting snow from pouring into the home. Ridge-cap shingles might degrade faster than the rest of the roof surface because they are twisted over the roof.
