So I told the inspector.....


I got the goop to stick the roof vent boot to the roof, and he says "Why? You don't need that.... just shove the thing under the shingles, it'll be fine."

HUH???

If shingles are cut correctly and lifted carefully you can install flashing without worry of leakage.

I always use a little blackjack though, just to be sure.

If it's done right, you don't really need it. I always use a little anyway.

No goop needed. Flashing gets weaved into the shingles. 1/2 on top, 1/2 under them.
