In response to Re: Roof vent pipes
yes they do make "hats" or you could make something homemade. but your problem is more likely the lead roof jack or the rubber gasket type flashing around the pipe.

: My roof has several vent pipes, 12" approx tall, and looks like 2" pvc pipe. PROBLEM - these pipes shoot straight up, and in heavy rain, which we have had quite alot of, they draw water. Somewhere in a wall, there is a small crack in one of these pipes. Until I can find this, is it possible to put something on top of the vent pipe (a hat or bonnett) which will permit air flow, but prevent rain from coming in? Please advise, as this is getting serious.
