Plano Roof Repair contractor Rhino Tuff Roofing walks you through flashing a vent stack.
Vent stacks on the roof need to be flashed in order to prevent leaks. Sometimes it can be as simple as tightening the neck of a lead collar (if it exists) on the pipe going through your roof. If a lead collar is present, then lightly tap it with a hammer or cold chisel working around the upper rim of the collar, sealing it against the stack.
Another possible solution is to use roofing cement to seal the flashing area and vent stack. If this does not work, then you may need to consider installing new flashing.
To install new flashing you must first remove any shingles covering the old flashing. Depending upon your roof you may simply be able to slip new flashing on top of the old one and then replace the shingles.
If you need to pry up the old flashing, then be sure to first place a new piece of felt on the roof sheathing before installing the new flashing. The flashing must always overlap the bottom shingles while still fitting underneath the top shingles.
