Adrain - I really was messing with you - if you look again you'll see that they used teflon tape to seal the joints on the gas line, which dates it after 1981...

By the way, the old guy plumbers still use putty for sealing gas line joints...

Sounds like a good report Scott!  Looking at it again, the roof was replaced recently, what 5 - 8 years ago(?) and they fitted the shingle around the vent!  They must have done that "flashing" when they replaced the shingles.

Looking again at the vertical vent, it seems to be galvanized, just like the strap.  That may cause some oxidation in time, who knows.  Looks like two things vent out that one vertical hole.  What would the second be?

And what does that gas line service?


The gas line services the kitchen on the main level. The roof was installed 2 years ago and it was in good shape except hardly any counter flashing.  Your correct that two lines do come out that vent. This house had a federal pacific panel and knob and tube with edison fuses. The electrical service was undersized.
