Would you pay for this?

I hired a GC to run some vents in my building. The plumber seems to have done a fine job from what I can see, but the “roofer” did some hack work. Looks to me like boots for a metal roof. Screwed down with sheet rock screws with some blackjack squirted around.

Am I wrong to make him come back and use a glue down boot designed for a rubber membrane, or is this acceptable?

No that is far from correct and now it will be harder to do it correctly to boot.

That looks like a thermoplastic roof as opposed to EPDM.

He is blaming the plumber. Says he threw those boots on incase it rained before the roofer got there. I hate when people assume I am as dumb as them.

Gonna leak anyway, split in the roof on the upper left corner of flashing. What roof system is that?

could be white EPDM.

Looks like it might have a coating. See to the left of the boot, looks like a brush stroke.

Here’s the other boot.
