polrcarbonate roof and weather slate

Postby dusty-jb » Sun Mar 15, 2009 6:29 pm

I am putting a polycarbonate roof on my "garden room" it will have a cast iron soil pipe going through it, I know I have to put some kind of weather slate around the pipe but the only ones I can find have to be slid over the pipe and as it's already fixed I can't, there must be a weather slate that opens up to go around the pipe, does anyone know of such a thing, and where I can get one?

Simply Build It

Never found such a product, use a scrap piece of roof, cut a hole to fit the soil pipe, cut it in half and fix in place using neutral cure clear silicone.
