Molded pipe boots offer a simple and reliable means to seal small pipes such as sewer vents and electrical service entry conduit. Two sizes are available: a small boot for 1/2”, 1”, 2”, and 3” pipes and a larger boot for 4”, 5”, and 6” pipes. For larger pipes, see CURVED PENETRATIONS.
Seam Tape is pre-applied to the bottom flange of the boots which extends 3” onto the roof. Molded ridges mark each pipe size for cutting: always cut above the ridges! A stainless-steel hose clamp is provided, but a tube of Silicone Caulk for EPDM is required for installation.
STEP 1: Cut just above the molded ridge
corresponding to the desired pipe size
STEP 2: Clean the rubber roof
surface surrounding the pipe boot.
STEP 3: Lower the pipe boot over the
pipe with the release paper in place.
STEP 4: Slowly pull the release
paper to expose the seam tape
STEP 5: Roll firmly with a steel
roller to bond the boot to the roof sheet.
STEP 6: After cleaning around
the boot flange, caulk the edge.
STEP 7: After cleaning the top of the
boot, caulk between the boot and pipe.
STEP 8: Screw the hose clamp
around the top of the pipe boot.
