Hello,
I have a chimney that the cap rusted on and stained my shingles. I have ashpalt shingles, light gray, and the rust is noticable. I tried CLR (Calcium, Lime, Rust remover) with a brush (first diluted, then a full strength-but I was worried about corrosion), but so far am unable to get the rust off.
In addition, there is one spot where there is a black streaking down the shingles..any ideas on this?

Does anyone have any suggestions??? I really dont want to replace the shingles, as there is not damage, only discolor.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.

Patrick

Both of you are paying the price, That price is the cap material someone decided to go with when the cap was bought and installed !!

Stainless steel is a little more money at first.......so you get what was paid for !!

The rust cannot be removed. Don`t try, you may scratch it bald scrubbing.

I agree with the the wrong caping. But some contractor that is expert on cutting cost installed it.

That is why I and others have a problem. I found a contractor that wanted to power wash it with some type of chemical. I knew if he does this it would destroy the roof. So I need to get away from the expert contractors and handle it my self, I though this was a way to get help by posting the problem. Be a solution not a problem with the issue I and others are having.

I will hope someone have an idea on what to use.

Thanks
