We bought a house four months ago and discovered that the plumbing vent pipe was not put back thru the roof after an addition was put on 3 years ago (inspector missed this!!)-- it vents into the attic. We want to remedy this ASAP, but are not sure if we should use a roofer or a plumber? We've gotten quotes from both-- who is the best person for this type of job? Any risks to the plumbing or roof while this work is being done that we should pay attention to??Thanks!!

This is a simple job a plumber you don't really need (will cost you $$) for this a good roofer or handyman can do it easly.

Roofer definitely! The most critical part of the job is making a water tight hole in your roof. A roofer will know how to do this, a plumber won’t.

Thank you both very much!!! I had a contractor lined up and now, he's not returning my calls--ugh! But, I've heard of another roofer to try, so I will call him. Unfortunately, my favorite handyman won't come to our new home, too far. I really appreciate it!!
