Leaks originating in roofs for residences can be quite difficult to locate and repair. The main reason is the damage seen inside the home is rarely directly below the location where the leak originates. This is primarily due to the pitch of the roof because it creates a liquid highway. Additionally, if the leak originates where plumbing vents penetrate the roof the moisture can follow the pipe down into the house and then show damage in walls or the ceiling of the first floor on a two story home.
For most of the time roof leaks can take some time between when the leak starts and it becomes manifest in damage to the interior of the home. This is due to the amount of precipitation and the regularity of it. Plus, it is also a factor of how large the penetration is because it can take some time for the moisture to accumulate and result in stains on the walls and ceilings. All these factors make it significantly difficult to locate the site of the leak and then make repairs.
When roof leaks originate from obvious locations it can be rather easy to repair. More times than not a roof leak originates from a plumbing pipe that rises through the roof. These are called plumbing vents since it provides fresh air into and passes sewer gases out of the homes plumbing system. The most common seal is a neoprene boot that snuggly fits up to the piping walls. Of all the plumbing vent seals through your roof the neoprene boot is the most economical to purchase and install. However, sometime in the future it is destined to fail.
