I love this approach (see image below - from Jeff Levine's site). I'm wondering why you don't see more of this.

John answered the question perfectly. It's a matter of choice.

What do you want? Where is the house at? If it is somewhere where you have a lot of trees and such around the house, the copper ridge will help to keep down the moss on the roof. If you like the moss however, you will not want to use copper on the ridges. You have to decide. good luck.

We are having our slate roof replaced. It is very steep, an 1870 tudor. I'm trying to decide if we should do copper ridges (it currently has them) or if we should do slate ridges? Which would you choose and why. We will have copper flashings and gutters.
