The "Pipe Boot" is an economical flashing designed for single pipe penetrations on single ply rubber and thermoplastic roofs. The Quadraseal is designed to allow as many as four pipes up to 2" in diameter to pass through one flashing. Quadraseals are available in EPDM material only. The conically shaped steps of the Portals Plus pipe flashing will securely seal all pipes and the large double thick molded rib at the top of each step offers supreme tear resistance and reinforcement, as well as a cutting guide. Utilizing the Pipe Flashings eliminates the workmanship error in field fabrication and makes flashing pipes a clean, consistent approach. Adapters for round, square tube, and angle iron are available to fit most pipe boots.
Roof flashing is a thin material, usually galvanized steel, that professional roofers use to direct water away from critical areas of the roof, wherever the roof plane meets a vertical surface like a wall or a dormer. Flashing is installed to surround roof features, such as vents, chimneys and skylights. Water should run down the side of the flashing and be directed to the shingles instead of finding its way into the roof deck. If there were no flashing against these walls, water could slowly drip into the crevice between the wall and the roof, and potentially into the home.
What is roof flashing? Simply put, roof flashing is any piece of sheet metal that forms a joint between the roof and objects that protrude from the roof, such as dormers, chimneys, and pipes, in such a manner that they prevent water from leaking through the joint. Virtually every house in America has at least one vent pipe or other penetration on the roof. Most likely, your old house has a chimney, perhaps several.
