Nashville Home Inspector - What's Wrong With This Picture? 6-8-12

Home Inspector with HABITEC Home and Building Inspections, LLC

Look at the picture below.  This is a roof-top vent cap for an HVAC furnace.  What's wrong?

HINT:  Most metal vents are made of smooth metal.

Dented HVAC Vent Cap

ANSWER:  Dents come from impact.  Unless there was a menacing contractor up there on the roof who went nuts with a hammer, these dents are likely caused by hail.  Next thing to do is check the condition of the roof shingles.

Thank you,
