Features & Benefits of GAF Premium Hip & Ridge Cap Shingles

The ridge cap is essential to the protection of the high-stress areas of your roof. It’s installed on the junction between two roof surfaces. Without it, the roof is vulnerable to harsh elements and serious problems. Here are some benefits of GAF’s Premium Hip and Ridge Cap Shingle lines.
