The 8 inch Boot Vent Kit is 8 inches in diameter with an 8 inch tall collar and 9 inch tall boot flashing. The boot is made of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) to match PVC roofs.
AVP's Boot Vent Kit consists of three main components:
The prefabricated boot flashing will fit perfectly over the vent collar creating the ideal base for the vent cap.
A boot vent is a roof flashing for waterproofing pipe penetrations of a roof. Roof boots typically cover pipes that run up from kitchens and bathrooms out through the roof. For example, some of these penetrations may include plumbing vent pipes and electrical service mast pipes. This will protect those penetrations from leaks.
The Boot Vent Kit comes with three parts to ensure protection of the home and roof.
Roofs expand and contract due to changes in the outside temperature. As the roof moves, plastic boots can shift, peel up or crack, resulting in roofing issues such as leaks.
However, AVP's boot flashing will shed water away from the penetration with the base material wrapping up into the riser. The flashings are factory-certified prefabricated flashings made from 60 mil reinforced PVC membrane. They will snugly fit over cylindrical penetrations typically found on PVC low slope roofs.
