Roof Vent Cap

7 posts in this topic

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,

Mike

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.

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
