The ceiling has a moulding that covers the seams in between the ceiling panels, these are about 1 1/2" inches wide and are secured to the roof by phillips head screws. These screws have a washer like metal ring that the screw caps attach to to conceal the screwheads the screw caps are made of plastic and thru the years the material has deterirated and they crack and fall off leaving the screw heads exposed.
I have searched on line but could not find the right size, the ones that I have found are 5/8" O/D I need 5/8" I/D.
If anyone can help it would greatly be appreciated.
There are many types of caps available. They come in different sizes, colors and mounting methods. One type has a metal disc under the screw head and a plastic cover that snaps on to cover the screw head. If you have this type, I doubt if you will be able to replace just the cap unless you get very lucky. Because of the snap fit, the size of the metal disc and the size of the plastic cap have to be matched, so you will probably have to replace both the disc and cap.
Google "screw caps," and you will get more than you ever thought possible. HERE
is one possible source. I have also seen the covers at Lowe's and Home Depot. Go to the hardware department and look in the drawers where they keep special fasteners.
