End caps for ridge vent
Our roofer did great job except he did not follow way to cut down and then fold under to make solid end cap piece on ends of ridge vent so that bats, rain, snow will not get in. Looks like he did two different things w the roofing’s asphalt shingles in each end (pic of each end attached) to try to do his own make shift end caps.
Any suggestions on what to do now to close them up/off properly? CoraVent 300 series made of polypropylene does not make an end cap that will fit available.
We thought about maybe great stuff foam insulation sprayed in big hole, let it set up, then some type of caulk or silicone to waterproof whole end. Can anyone recommend a good silicone or caulk that bonds well to both plastic vent and asphalt shingles?
