Safely & Quickly Installing the Roof Vent Boot Guard
After years of chicken wire covers, roofing tar, window screen, and zip ties, a permanent solution to roof lead boot damage is here! Keep out unwanted debris from your vents with this one-piece molded removable cover. Our vent cover features a protective grill on top and uses patented airflow technology to remove plumbing gas from your building quickly. Convenient pitch marks on the rear of the product make installation a breeze.
1. Replace the damaged lead boot prior to installing the Roof Vent Boot Guard. Make sure the lead is tightly formed around the plumbing pipe. Note: It may be necessary to form the lead boot into a cylindrical shape by tapping it with a hammer.
2. Back out set screws at base of Boot Guard. Place over lead stack. Lightly tap into place. Snug set screws into lead stack. Note: additional screws provided for use on 2 inch lead boots.
3. The pipe vent shield has already been molded to accommodate standard pitch roofs. To achieve a steeper angle, simply trim the material from the rear of the boot guard using pitch marks, which are provided on the bottom of the guard. They start at 5/12" on the bottom and end at 8/12" at the top mark.
Product Guarantee: The manufacturer will replace this product 10 years from the date of purchase if it fails to protect your property's lead boot from rodent damage after being properly installed.
