HORSHAM, Pa. – Benjamin Obdyke Incorporated, a leading provider of high performance roof and wall products to the residential and commercial construction markets, today announced it has revitalized its already well-known and dependable line of ridge ventilation.

With over 1.6 million roofs protected, Benjamin Obdyke is the most trusted name in ridge vent for 30 years. In 1987, they transformed the industry with the creation of Roll Vent, the first ridge vent on a roll. Since then, they have added 5 more ridge vent lines with 14 different product options. To celebrate three decades of providing customers with innovative products, Benjamin Obdyke has updated its trusted Ridge Vent line that helped the company become the ventilation experts they are today.

Unlike many products on the market, Premium quality Hot Dipped Galvanized nails are now included in every product. Hot Dipped Galvanized nails improve longevity and rust resistance for outdoor applications that are subject to extreme elements. Not only are hot dipped galvanized nails high quality and corrosion resistant, but they comply with Miami Dade Code.

Along with the other improvements, the entire Ridge Vent family warranty now extends to a Lifetime Limited Warranty when installed with lifetime shingles.

One of their most unique products, Xtractor Vent XLP, is a low-profile sectional ridge vent that is designed specifically for fast installation with the use of a nail gun. With only one other product of its kind on the market, XLP has the benefits of premium hot dipped galvanized nails, 12.75 in2/lin ft of Net Free Area and integrated end plugs throughout for structural integrity and to reduce scrap. XLP is just one of the 14 different product options getting refreshed.

“We are very excited to revitalize our product line with new, striking packaging, longer warranty coverage and more durable accessories,” said Tara Murray, Marketing Manager for Benjamin Obdyke. “As the inventor of the first rolled ridge vent, we take pride in our ridge ventilation offering and track record. We constantly look for ways to improve our products and help people Build Better. The upgrade in nail quality, packaging, and extension of warranty provide value to both installers and homeowners. Proper roof ventilation and the use of high-quality materials to ensure durability is so often overlooked.  We strive to educate the industry on best-practices, and these recent changes help us to open that dialogue.”
