Question Question, Vent pipe on my roof.

No caulking around my vent pipe just a big gap all the way around it. Caulking is 2 or 3 inches from vent all the way around. Gap looks like it never had any caulking ever.

Thanks.

First of all it's always a good idea to first create your signature which appears at the bottom of every post. Check out our signature and you'll have an idea what people post. This makes it easier to answer questions.

In this case we don't know if your unit is 2 months old or 10 years old. If it was never calked and it only 2 months old no big deal. If it's 10 years old then perhaps a lot of water has already seeped into and under your roof. In either case it should be calked ASAP. Then search for any internal water damage that may have occurred.

After that's done. Create your signature for future posts.

Picture of vent with new caulking around pipe. I cann't understand why would a person in the past caulk 2 inches away from pipe but wouldn't caulk around pipe?

I believe the pipe had a plastic or rubber flashing on it and the flashing was caulked down. It is obviously gone and can be replaced.
