Roof Vent Cap

Recommended Posts

I need to replace a vent cap on the roof of my house.The rubber boot is cracked and is leaking in bedroom ceiling. Any idea whats involved and what it might cost? Do to an injury years back I can not do ladders, so I will have to hire it done. Will I need a roofer, handyman or ??.

Thanks, Mike

Depending on the condition of the shingles, it can be fixed rather easily. A handyman may just slap it on and surround it with tar. Then you will just have to wait for it to leak again. A roofer would probably do it for you for next to nothing. It's the drive that will cost you. Where are you located?

Thanks for the reply roofer. I am in KC so it looks like i will hunt for a local roofer.

Thanks again,

I would give my neighbor nephew or son in law a 12 pack to climb up there and reseal it. I would use sikaflex as a sealer; cover the entire boot and tin an eigth inch thick. This will cost about 15 bucks and will last forever.

hmmmmmmmmmmm lol

What about when you have to get that cover off? What about if someone falls off your roof? Do they have insurance?

Make sure they have the 12 pack before they go up there. Then you know you have a good job. wink

Homeowners insurance will not pay for someone hurt on your property if you hire them. Why do you think contractors pay thousands of dollars a year just for their own liability.

I see your point, but you haven't seen the things I have seen done to roofs by people who have no idea what they are doing.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
