hard to believe

A few years back, I inspected a home with a roof that was installed with the cutout for a ridge vebt, but the roofer never installed the vent. You could not even tell from the ground, because the ridge cap shingles looked complete from below. For ten years there had been a hole in the roofing about three to four inches wide that ran the length of the ridge, and yet the only consequence was a slightly gray stripe of fiberglass batt insulation below the opening. Of course, being at the ridge, only rain drops that fell directly through the gap entered the attic - no runoff water. If I hadn't seen it, I would have expected much worse consequences. It was surprising that no one had ever questioned the attic being open to daylight at the peak.
