The ones on my roof were cracked saround the pipe and leaked water when it rained. I bought new ones, cut the boot off the base and slipped them over the pipe. That was 14 years ago. Haven't had a problem.

if you are going to use a boot go with the ones with the galvinized base, call abc supply and check which store has them, 14 bucks or so

I agree, that lead is better, but squirrels like to eat them, and I've got squirrels...

I'd get the lead jacks. The plastic ones are junk

Vent pipe boots
I've got a problem with cracking vent pipe boots. Found a product called a Perma-Boot that slips over and covers the old boot. Anyone have any experience with these and are they recommended? Thanks
