The SmartRidge is a ridge vent with a baffle on one side only; if the baffle faces the backyard, the vent won’t be visible from the street because it will be hidden by the ridge caps. The company claims that having a single baffle actually increases airflow because negative air pressure created by wind flowing over the ridge pulls air only from inside the attic, and not from the outside through the other baffle. Pricing is $2.50 to $3 per foot or $7.50 to $9 per piece.
