When old antiquated ridge vents lose their usefulness and provide nothing but leaks, ERS provides the solution.
This building was purchased a few years ago by a customer we’ve had a good working relationship for 12 years. We patched up many holes in the roof, but this unusually large continuous vent was going to be too costly to remove and fill in the hole.
Our solution is to cover the top with membrane. This will still provide some ventilation while keeping the water out. We’ve developed ways to improve most standard ridge vents from leaking but this one is far from standard and a poor design.
We will eventually be installing a membrane overlay system over the entire roof.
