Slow Roof Leak

It appears i've developed a "Small" water leak around my kitchen exhaust vent. The piping extends out through the roof. Can someone recommend a sealant that can be applied around the vent flashing in wet weather. Or other suggestions that may remedy the situation.

I have seen roof mastic that can be applied in wet weather at the Big Box stores. I prefer to do it when dry though. Check to make sure that the water is not blowing in the vent opening. Good luck and watch this post for more opinions and answers.

We've had alot of wind and rain, but it appears the water is dripping down the outside of the ducting. I could never get that lucky, that is to have it inside the duct.

I know that feeling. Looks like its time to reseal around the shingles and pipe. You will probably want to use mesh type material that adds strength to the seal under the mastic.
