Plumbing Stack Roof Repair  Project

Plumbing Stack Damage
Roof penetrations are the most common leak points. In this repair, the plumbing stack (vent pipe) was installed but not properly flashed and waterproofed. This causes regular leaking around this pipe penetration.
Plumbing Stack Repair
The Reliable Roofing repair technician chose to install a lead pipe flashing to fix this leak.  He prepped a proper lead pipe flashing for installation over the pipe on top of the roof membrane.  The lead was formed to fit over the plumbing stack. A layer of roofing cement was spread on the bottom of the pipe flashing and the perimeter of the flashing collar.
Plumbing Stack Roof Repair - Finished
The pipe flashing was set in place and a target patch of modified bitumen roofing membrane was installed over the flashing collar. The plumbing vent stack is now watertight.We believe the roof is the most important part of any building, as it protects everything inside. There are many ways a roof could become damaged, and therefore we are here to help. At Reliable Roofing, we are committed to help repair and maintain the roofing materials on multi-family homes and businesses in the Chicagoland and northern Chicago suburbs.
