Helpful Tips

  • Brittle PVC Pipe
    PVC pipe can become brittle from years of exposure, so handle it carefully. It could snap if you pull on it.
  • 1-1/2 inch PVC Pipe
    When installing the Perma-Boot on 1-1/2 inch (inside diameter) pipes, the boot will not fit snugly around the pipe. This is normal, the cap will secure the boot.
  • "Loose" PVC Pipe
    If your PVC pipe moves downward while installing the boot, you may need to pull the pipe up while sliding the boot down so that the boot stays in contact with the roof.
  • PVC Pipe Length
    In most areas, building code states that the PVC pipe must be 12 inches above the roof. The Perma-Boot can handle a few inches of variation from this, but if your pipe is really long or really short you may need to either cut it down to size, or use some PVC pipe fittings to extend it.
