Unlike a commercial single-ply roofing replacement, residential structures often use asphalt shingles as a roofing material. Contractors will install shingles from the tail of the rafters and work their way up to where two roof slopes meet. This intersection is called a hip (or a ridge, depending on your roof style) and it houses the ridge vents that control moisture levels in your attic. This area is protected by a specialized set of shingles called ridge and hip cap shingles. Hip and ridge caps perform two important roles: to give your roofing system a finished look and to protect the roof ridge from external damage.
