STEP 2 Attach SmartRidge II End Piece (Fig. B)
After roof shingles are installed, begin at one end of the roof. A nailing strip can be found on SmartRidge II approximately 2" in from the edge of the product. This is where you should nail when attaching SmartRidge II to the roof decking using 1 ½” – 2” roofing nails.
In the SmartRidge II box are pieces of fabric (approx. 10 ½” square) and two end caps that will be used to seal the gable ends (Fig B). Install end caps or wrap the fabric around the end of a piece of SmartRidge II so that an equal amount of fabric is on top and on the bottom (Fig C).
Position the SmartRidge II piece over the ridge so that it is nearly centered over the ridge opening. Butt the SmartRidge II against the end cap or, if using the fabric pieces to seal the end, wrap the fabric tightly around the end of the SmartRidge II piece (Fig D). Fold SmartRidge II over the ridge and secure to the roof decking using 1 ½” roofing nails minimum. Other installation techniques are available by calling DCI at 1-800-622-4455 (engineering department).
