I am doing some remodeling in the kitchen. The kitchen sink had its own 2" vent stack that went through the roof. I wont be needing it anymore and easily pulled down the 2" pipe out of the roof. Now there is a hole in the roof. How would i properly seal this hole off?

This is a roofing question... not a plumbing question.
The answers will depend on the sort of roofing you have, how much you care about appearance and things like that.

Short term...
something like a metal cap over the boot with good tape will keep the weather out.

I forgot to add... I don't want to deal with going on the roof

So you pulled the pipe out and now have a 2" hole in the roof but to not want to get on the roof and fix the hole:eek:
Sorry not going to happen. Someone's going to have to get up on the roof to fix it, how depends on what type roof it is.

Look before you leap, in this case, think before you yank.

Option 1: Go in the attic, glue on a cap and shove the pipe back up there. Im assuming a rubber All-Vent?

Option 2, The Right way: Remove the flashing, cover the hole with sheet metal and properly install shingles. You did have them leave you a square or so when you had the roof done, right?

Scardy Cat! :tongue_smilie:
