Plumbing Vent – Know Before You Buy Home Inspections

Plumbing Boot

I see this on a regular basis and it is really a simple repair for a professional roofer.  The PVC pipe that comes out of your roof is a plumbing vent.  This vent allows air into the plumbing system allowing for operation.  This is a simple process.  The issue arises with the PVC ‘boot’ that is installed around the piping.  These boots over time can and do crack and warp.  While these can leak-usually the leak can go undetected for quite a while due to the small size of the water intrusion.

When you see a small stain on the ceiling and wonder why- this is probably your cause.  A professional roofer can make this repair (replace the boot) very easily and quickly.  Look up at your roof from time to time, you may save yourself some trouble.
