    Default ridge vent

    i have a question for any roofers out there.
    why do ridge vents always end about a foot from the edge of the roof?
    i realize it would not be functional, but couldn't you run it all the way to the end for appearances?

    That extra few feet add up in cost over the course of several roofs. There is no reason that you can't run it all the way to the ends, just don't notch the deck in the overhangs.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!

    that's what i thought.
    i have no idea of cost, but if i were to put 40 foot on my house, i would pay for the extra couple of feet. i just think it would look better.

    thanks
