One area often dismissed or forgotten in the roof replacement process is pipe flashing! Pipe flashing, sometimes referred to as a roof boot, is manufactured to seal tightly around small ventilation pipes, plumbing, and other vents and equipment that protrude from the roof of a home or commercial building. Flashing is sometimes overlooked or poorly or improperly installed during roof installation. Inreality, it is a vital element of the roofing system. It keeps your roof waterproof and airtight, sealing the outer envelope that protects the interior of your home from weather and other elements.
Tredegar Construction is proud to offer Lifetime Tool and Building Products' Ultimate Pipe Flashing, an upgraded pipe boot with a 50-year warranty specifically designed to keep plumbing penetrations high and dry.
Why is this pipe flashing impressive? It starts with the 24-gauge base plate. Adequately and appropriately sized to give you enough room on each side of the penetration to ensure weathertightness. Integrated into that 24-gauge galvanized Kynar painted boot is a pure silicone boot designed to handle everything from highly steep roofs to those with a flat pitch. The PVC compression collar, which stays on through the life of the boot, will keep the silicone from relaxing away from the pipe itself. The pure silicone boot, which is resistant to UV rays and drying and cracking, is extremely thick compared to other boots, at 200 thousandths of an inch thick. When the plate is installed, there is no face nailing needed. Slots have been punched into the side of the plate allowing for fastening, and the stamping process has put a ridged race track design around the perimeter of the plate to ensure that the plate will lay flat on the shingles. The Ultimate Pipe Flashing allows adequate material on either side of the penetration, unlike competitive brands, which are often built too small.
If you are considering re-roofing your home, be sure that your pipe flashing is something you address to ensure you get the maximum life out of all of your roofing materials!
