Hardin County Home Inspection Finds- Plumbing Vent

Plumbing Boot

I see this on a regular basis and it is really a simple repair for a professional roofer.  The PVC pipe that comes out of your roof is a plumbing vent.  This vent allows air into the plumbing system allowing for operation.  This is a simple process.  The issue arises with the PVC ‘boot’ that is installed around the piping.  These boots over time can and do crack and warp.  While these can leak-usually the leak can go undetected for quite a while due to the small size of the water intrusion.

When you see a small stain on the ceiling and wonder why- this is probably your cause.  A professional roofer can make this repair (replace the boot) very easily and quickly.  Look up at your roof from time to time, you may save yourself some trouble.

Elizabethtown Ky Home Inspection Testimonial

I had purchased three houses previously, all with different home inspectors, so I have a good basis for comparison, and wouldn’t use anyone else for home inspection.  In addition to a thorough professional written report with pictures for documentation regarding all aspects of the house, Know Before You Buy was still there for me after the sale, when I needed clarification on some of their recommendations.
