plumbing stack question


should the 4 inch plumbing vent stacks coming through the roof be left wide open or should I put some sort of vented cover over them to protect from elements or birds,etc.
thanks.

Open, I have never encountered problems with open vents, if it concerns you then you can put a vent cap on it.
