Not sure what a ridgevent does or if it is needed on your shed? Below is an interesting article on how a ridgevent works when installed in your home. The principles are the same for why a ridge vent is important in your shed.
A ridgevent, when properly installed, will allow the hot air that collects to escape as it rises in your shed (hot air rises!). Since sheds are generally not as tall as homes, there isn’t a whole lot of area for the hot air to collect, making some sheds too hot to want to spend much time in there.
Allowing the hot air to escape will also extend the life of your shingles, something that we highly recommend even though the shingles used by Fox’s Country Sheds in each and every building are all 30-Year shingles. Hot, moist air collecting under your roofing sheathing is not very healthy for your shed.
Along with the hot air, a ridgevent will allow fumes from your gas powered lawn equipment to escape. So, if the hot air doesn’t bother you too much, consider the fumes collecting in your backyard shed from your lawn tractor.
A ridge vent is particularly important to include when considering options for your shed when you will be using your structure as a Garden Office or Workshop. In this case, you may even consider upgrading to vented soffits along with a ridgevent for a fully ventilated shed or garage.
