Had the roof torn off and reroofed as well as new siding and new windows put on my house. I have so many nails in my driveway it's not even funny. I have one of those magnets on a stick I have been pulling around. Seems like it's never ending. I can drag an area then go over it 2 more times and still pull up nails.

Gotta be another way.

When my house was built, i had a tire with 15 plugs in it, took a year to stop getting nails. I got good at plugging tires.

I’ve seen magnets that are the width of a truck that hang off the front bumper.

I would have withheld final payment until the contractors did this.

I thought they put tarps down when they were removing the old roof to avoid this? You got swindled!

Call the roofing company and ask them to send a guy out to get these nails. They normally use a magnetic roller that's 2' wide or so. Certainly would be more efficient than what you're using.

+1. Those rollers should be part of the service.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

Yep, I've had a few roofs done and they always get all the nails. Usually you don't pay the last 1/3 til the whole job is done and that's when you should be checking for nails. And the tarps are for not only only the nails but the shingles too, quicker clean up.

If they don't take care of this for you then leave them a 1 star yelp review because that seems like the roofing companys problem.

No they wanted an extra $5k to clean up and haul off the mess. I figured I could do that and save money but now I know why it was so much more.

thumbsup Yes, but since he was probably paid I'd make him come back and do it now.

You can buy quite a few tires for the $5k you saved.... grin
