Roofing/Lead vs Rubber Vent Boots
Had my roof reshingled. The original agreement was for lead one-piece boots on the vent pipes. However, the crew "forgot" and used the black rubber-like boots. Now the roofer tells me he will damage the seal of the new shingles if he removes the incorrect rubber boots and goes with the originally agree-osn lead boots? Your thoughts, recommendations? Many thanks for the info!
I am Thinking you are talking about the pipe flashing ???
It sounds like you are talking about an ode flashing with a rubber connection to the plumbing pipe.
from my experience I stopped using them do to the fact they break down faster with the sun and heat.
I am in California we use a full aluminum or galvanized flashing that slides over the pipe. Then we add a rubber storm collar on it. I do not know what kind of roof they applied.
Mostly lead flashing are used on tile roofs.
If this was here I would have them change it.
I am not familiar with your building codes, You might want to call your city building department and ask them what one works better in your area.
Hope all works out
