my current roof is asphalt shingles. due to the numerous vaulted ceilings it is vneted only with ridge vents . When I remodel I want to switch to a metal roof. Is there a ridge vent product compatable with metal roofing??

Yes, all metal roof systems designed for residential use will have suggested ridge venting methods specified by their manufacturers. The exact ridge vent method will vary form product to product based upon profile and other things. However, if you do not have any soffit vents for intake, along with an airspace alongside the bottom of the roof decking, leading to the ridge vent as exhaust, your ridge vent really is accomplishing very little. It's not worthless but it's not real effective either.
