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.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
