roof vent roof

I'm replacing drain in my daughters kitchen. When I cut out the tee (down to the basement up; straight up through the roof) the vent pipe slid up & down in the flashing boot. The roof was replaced about 2 months ago. From the ground ( ranch house) the flashing looks new. Is this normal to be this loose? Is there a hose clamp to tighten ? Or should I just caulk it?
Thanks

Vent pipe boots are normally rubber and fit snugly onto the pipe. There is no caulking and no clamping required. There is nothing unusual about your vent pipe sliding in the boot when it is disconnected. Just make sure that you get up on the roof and make sure that you haven't inverted the rubber boot by pulling the pipe down. That is the only thing that would cause a problem.

I only moved it 2 or 3 inches. I had a feeling it might happen & checked it before I took the tee out. I'll check that out on the roof.
Thanks for tour help.
