My house had a second layer of shingles added, before I bought it. When the second layer was added, nothing was done with the flashing around the vent stack. The rubber boot has dry rotted so I can now see sun light in the attic. How do I repair this.

Install a new flashing over the existing one. Interlace it with the shingles and tar down the edges.

Thank you for the reply. By interlacing the flashing with the shingles, do you mean putting it under the shingles with out breaking them?

Yes the flashing is like a shingle with a hole in it. The flashing needs to fit up under the higher shingles. You probably won't be able to nail the top of the flange but you should be able to nail the sides.
