Ridge Installation

Installing Copper Ridge Without Exposed Fasteners
COPPER RIDGE can be installed with nails or cleats.

The nails would typically be 2.5" 10 ga. copper roofing nails, spaced between each pair of underlying slates (approximately 12" apart, but nailed *between* the underlying slates, which will determine spacing). The nail heads will then need to be sealed with a sealant such as GE Silicon II clear caulk.

Alternatively, the ridge can be installed with cleats or straps, which will allow an installation with no exposed fasteners. Use longer-grip copper/brass pop rivets to attach the straps to the ridge.

Here are some photos of cleats on ridges showing other ways to use them:
