Oh, i found nice black ones in different shapes/sizes.. just have to look around

EPDM and Silicone Pipe Boots for Roof Penetration sealing and retrofit applications - for example in black..

Thanks chidding, I see it can come in black. The other thing about the boot is that it doesn't look that good up close and my oven has a low roof were you can see it very easily especially from the side. So I started to look for alternatives.

A friend of mine mentioned the roof would look good if it were a copper roof. It would really look nice as it ages. He knew a guy that does copper work and I had him come over to look at it. We talked about the project and it looks like I might go for the copper roof, as it will last as long as the pizza oven will.

The black ones are EPDM and are good for 200C, OK for outside a double flue. For a single flue you need the red silicon which is good for 250C

Well It has been a little while since I have had much done on my project. I have been looking into different types of roofing and I have finally decided on a copper roof. I have an installer arriving this Saturday to cover the roof with copper. I'm really looking forward to having the roof covered and not having to place a canopy over every time it rains. There is a product that I purchased for when the roof is finished that will allow the copper to retain the shine and not oxidize. We didn't want the roof to patina into the green that copper so typically does in time. I'll have photos sometime after this Saturday of the roof.

Brian:

Very nice build. Have you given any thought to covering the whole dome with vermiculite. It could just be poured in loose, very little time and $$ to do this. I did this with mine, and it really holds the heat.

Ken,

Thank you, and yes I did think about filling with vermiculite in addition to the 3 inches of blanket insulation. Unfortunately I had to bring the roof lower so there wasn't any room above the dome to fill so I decided not to use it. I have found the blanket insulation that I'm using for my location holds the heat well.

Thanks again,
Brian

John,
Thanks, I'm having a guy that works with copper do the installation and he had the supplies for the roof. I know there is a store in Santa Barbara that sells copper and I think it is called Copper Supply.
Once the roof is finished this Saturday I will begin the process of coating it so the copper color remains.
