Why Does Sheffield Metals Endorse EPDM Pipe Boots?

Today on Q&A Mondays, Thad, Adam, and Jeff discuss what pipe boots are, how they are installed, and why Sheffield Metals would endorse them for metal roofing systems. You will learn the differences between regular, high temp, and retrofit pipe boots, as well as how to install them when they fall in the flat of a panel and the seam of a panel. The Metal Roofing Channel has received many comments about why Sheffield would promote a rubber product in their system design, so hopefully this video serves to answer that question and more.
