Roof Boots: What Are They and Why Are They Important?


There is more to your roof than just shingles. It is made up of several components that give it the ability to protect your home against the elements. Keeping them in good shape is vital to your roof’s longevity and performance. Despite their importance, many homeowners are unaware of the purpose of boots covering roof vent pipes.

What Are Roof Boots?

Your home’s plumbing system manages wastewater by bringing it into the sewer system. The vent pipes make this process possible. They run from the kitchen, bathroom, and up to the roof. For these components to stay in top shape, they require a special covering called roof boots.

If boots get damaged after a weather event or due to natural wear and tear, they must be fixed immediately to protect your interior against leaks and water damage. At Bone Dry Roofing, you can count on us for pipe boot repair services.

Why Are They Important?

Roof boots make vent pipes less vulnerable to damage from high winds, moisture, debris, and other harsh outdoor elements. They seal the vent pipes and keep water from infiltrating beneath the roof’s surface. Water leaks are one of the last things you want in your home. Once they occur, other issues will follow, such as mold growth, rot, poor indoor air quality, and even compromised electrical systems.

When roof vents get damaged, vent pipes can also develop problems. When this happens, wastewater might not travel properly into the sewer system. Fortunately, you can avoid this issue by getting a pipe boot repair immediately.

Several factors determine the life expectancy of your roof boots, such as material, climate, and maintenance. You can help them last longer with regular maintenance and prompt repairs. It also helps to work with an experienced contractor for your roofing needs.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!
We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
