Moisture Around Roof Pitch Pockets

Most roofs have pipes, vents or other penetrations that require special details to prevent infiltration of moisture. A roof pitch pocket is a sheet metal box with a flange on the bottom and is designed to surround roof penetrations. The flange is secured under the roof system to provide a water-tight seal.
