The Bullet Boot
The Bullet Boot is a new patented product is designed to aesthetically replace the old toxic lead pipe boot at a competitive price. These boots are a one-piece flexible rubber TPE pipe flashing. This is a one-piece flexible design that goes on the outside as well as the inside of the pipe. The Bullet Boot has one hundred percent UV protection. Furthermore, the boots make an ideal flashing for all types of shingle, tile, metal, and TPO roofing. Additionally, all our boots come with rodent screen built in the top. This prevents rodents, birds, and other critters from entering the vent. As well, the screen prevents unwanted debris from entering the vent. There is no need to paint since it comes in many colors to match virtually any roof application. Finally, this innovative product adapts to any roof pitch due to its flexible material.

The Bullet California Boot
We also offer a boot which is 3″ taller and has a 2″ larger flange all the way around. This boot was designed for California where they use a wider flange. However, many roofers have found a need for a taller boot or a wider base due to different conditions, such as snow. This boot has all the same benefits as the original.

Fitting: Remove interfering shingle nails around the perimeter of the roof opening. Depending on the application, apply a bead of shingle adhesive along the bottom of the flange, and slide the top end of the Bullet Boot up and under the shingle. Allow the bottom vent flange to lie on top of the shingles or cut shingle to fit.
Mounting: Care should be taken in keeping the Bullet Boot properly aligned. Nail in place using 1-1/4” coated or stainless roofing nails spaced 6” to 8” on center, or at least 3 per side, maximum of 1” from the outer edge of the flange, and 1-1/2” from each corner. Roofing cement should be applied to all shingle edges and nail heads to prevent water infiltration. In severe weather coastal hurricane zones, it is recommended to caulk around the entire Bullet Boot perimeter, under the vent flanges, and near the outer edges (7108 Permathane Sealant).
