On a typical asphalt roof, the ridge vents have a layer of shingle over them, as shown in this photo. The vent lets the warm air out of the attic and out of this ridge vent.
Most people don't know about ridge ventilation, which makes sense, because most people just want the roof leaking to stop and be dry.
But it's an important thing to not overlook, because it can lower your utility costs, improve your living conditions in the home, and can even extend the life of your shingles too.
In the summertime, a properly ventilated roof allows hot air in the attic to escape, reducing the demand on your air conditioning system. In the winter, ventilation combines with good attic insulation to keep the roof surface cold, so that snow won't melt on the roof surface and then freeze to form ice dams along the eaves.
