Here is my ongoing roofing situation. When it rains, especially hard - rain would drip from this 1 spot on the ridge (1 drop every 2-3 seconds) down into a bucket I have sitting on the floor joist in the unfinished attic. The attic has no lights and it's not really walkable (you can if you only step on the joist). My 1st attempt going up to the roof, I discovered that 2 piece of ridge vent was used for the ridge. The 2 ridge vents are butted to each other (1 long piece of ridge vent would prevented this) with some old roofing cement on the seam, which is cracked. What I did was I patched it up with some Geocell 2300 sealant. It still dripped
My 2nd attempt, I went up there and I applied another layer of sealant and it's still dripping when it rains. I'm very certain where I see it leaking when I'm on the attic is exactly where the 2 ridge vent butted on the roof.
Anyone out there has a similar issue or knows what this could be.
Anyone help would be appreciated. Thanks everyone for your time.
note: I went to Lowes and their ridge vents are much wider than minds.. Otherwise I would purchased it cut a piece of it and overlay it on the butted area.
