Plumbing vent (Stack) leak


To answer your earlier question...I believe it's a plumbing stack but I'm not sure.

There was never any leaking before we replaced the roof.

Thank you so much!

That's what we call rental units that have a main dwelling with two apartments upstairs. And when it's attached to another similar dwelling like our is it's called a semi-detached triplex.

Id probably wait for a warmer day,but us nebraskans arent dedicated like you folks from Canada!
If you have a way to get up there and atleast put a hose down the plumbing stacks to eliminate them as possible leaks Id probably try it if you can get up there without breaking your neck.
Just make sure to disconect the hose from the faucet when done so it dont freeeze
