waterproofing mini-logo


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.
