Re: Ridge Strip Vents

Look on the Cor-A-Vent site under "downloads" near the bottom of the page. There are 2 PDF files developed By Kelly Cobeen for unblocked diaphragms. She gives a methodolgy for developing at least some shear across the gap.

Usually, I require ridge blocking at every other bay for diaphragm continuity where ridge strip vents are being used.  I have a client not allowing this.  What are other options for creating shear continuity across the vent gap?
