Soil Pipe Question

I have a deck off the back of my house and it is higher off the ground. I have a soil pipe located right by the door to my house and since you are up higher I believe you get a wiff of the soil pipe when the breeze is just right. It's only when you walk out the door near the soil pipe.

Is there anything I can do other then extend the pipe? Any ideas?

Soil Pipe Question

By "soil pipe" it sounds like you mean a vent.
Does it come out of a wall or, is it through the roof?

Correct it is through the roof so it's the 16" or so silver pipe coming out of the roof. I do not have a pic at the moment

Just extend the pipe. You can't cap it. If you want perhaps you could access the attic and move the thing to a different point through the roof.
