Here is the answer to the question from the other day! It is a Vent Boot!
A vent boot covers the pipes that stick out of your roof and what it does is it seals the area where the pipe comes out. I’m bringing this up to you today because replacing the vent boots is a relatively cheap repair – a handyman can do it, a homeowner can do it, or a roofer can do it.
Benefit: The benefit of having the vent boots replaced is that they don’t always last as long as your roof lasts. So if your roof is 7 years old or older then it is better to have them replaced rather than waiting for a rainstorm to come and find that your ceiilngs or walls or damaged or that the items you are storing in your attic are damaged.
Example: This particular boot is a newer model – it is a new design that is supposed to last longer because they use a different material and made design changes that address the weak spot where traditional vent boots often fail. The boot is called Perma Boot and the product’s website is www.Perma-Boot.com .
Cost Saving: I’m sharing with you about vent boots today because I want you to take advantage of every opportunity to do cost-effective maintenance and inexpensive repairs on your home now to save money in the long run.
