Gooseneck vents are used to exhaust bathroom fans, kitchen exhaust fans and dryer vents

 

When evaluating the quality of a Gooseneck vent installation look for the following:
– shingles overlapping the flanges of the vent are solid pieces
– a minimum 1″ space between the vents base and the shingles surrounding it
– tar over all nail heads

Roofing Tar treats the symptom rarely the problem

Roofing Tar, or sealant, is used to address small penetrations such as nail heads.  Excessive amounts of tar are often a sign of prior leaking.  This should be taken apart and addressed properly during the re-roof process.  This could also be a result of the bricks being installed too tightly to the roof deck preventing a proper installation.
