Rooftop accessories, as they are called, serve important and different purposes. Even though many look the same (especially from below), This is a quick overview, as seen from the roofer’s eye, of some accessories.

Plumbing Boot: This type of flashing is used to cover plumbing exhaust pipes (the part that sticks out). The roof is where it exists. These are typically available in two forms: painted aluminum boots with a neoprene seal and lead pipe flashings. They cover the pipe’s top edge and then tuck into it. These are the most popular options for residential roofing. There are many options for pipe flashings. Every Redemption Roofing roof re-roof job requires us to replace the plumbing boots.

Furnace stack: A furnace stack is a pipe that exhausts the furnace’s burning fumes from your home. The pipe must be long enough to allow the furnace’s combustion gases to exit from above the roofline and not filter into your house. A roofing crew can’t change the pipe; a certified HVAC professional is recommended.

Electric Riser & Boot: An electrical riser is a length of piping that connects the home’s electric utilities to an electric drop. To weatherproof the opening from moisture and precipitation, the electric boot is a rubber collar.

Chimney Chase Covers: Chimney Chase covers are an exterior top covering for a chimney. This cover prevents water entry to the interior of the chimney structure. A chase cover is typically made from an inexpensive galvanized sheet.
