At Bullet Products LLC, we carry only the highest quality plumbing vent boots – ones that expand and move with your roof. As long as their installed properly, our plumbing vent boots are sure to not crack, chip, or become damaged due to their ability to expand with the roof as the weather changes.

Loosen your roof’s shingles using a pry bar around the sides of your vent pipe. Place the new plumbing vent boot over the vent, ensuring it’s in the right position. Make sure the cover is fit snuggly around the pipe to prevent water penetration. Use hammer nails to secure the boot into place. Roofing cement can also be used.
