The shingles around the stink pipe on the roof of my cape are discolored and "wrinkled" looking. I have a small stain on the ceiling under where these shingles are.
What is the best way to seal off this area to stop any further moisture?
Do I just get a tube of roofing cement/tar and put that under the existing shingles or do I need to replace the shingles and reflash around the stink pipe? Any help would be tremendous! Thanks!
The stink pipe you are referring to is the termination of the vent stack. Normally a special collar slips over the pipe itself and the flashing part on the base of the collar needs to be tucked under a run of shingles, nailed with roofing nails,then mucked over. A quick-fix would be pure 100% silicone applied all around the vent pipe and flashing. Hope this helps you out some, please post back and tell us the final outcome, Tom
