Pictured below is an example of a cracked pipe boot which is the leading cause of leaks in a roofing system. Your roof may have anywhere from 2-5 pipe boots on it. To prevent roof leaks, checking for damage or cracks of all your pipe boots once every 10 years or so is vital. By having a professional check them this can help prevent roof leaks and possible interior water damage.
If you don’t acknowledge and maintain your roofing system and its components, it can lead to leaks or other possible issues. The time it takes to have a professional come out and check your pipe boots, and even replace them if necessary, will be well worth the time and the money. Remember, you can have a perfectly good roofing system and the only thing that will fail is the pipe boots as they age.
