Hi all, we recently had a new roof put on the house at the shore. One of the neighbors called and said they found a piece of metal in our driveway which they thought was from our house. The roofer was long gone I have NO idea what it is - does anybody know? Thanks so much.

Looks like either a vent cap or a chimney cap.

Probably a temporary cap left on site after removal. A permanent cap would be unlikely to have face screws.

I vote UFO and say that you should submit this to the government.

It looks like a pan one would have used to sift the sand on the beech and look for valuables.

Oh yeah, it could be a vent cap as well.

I done three roofs. I never used any temporary caps. I would call the worker back and ask for an explanation. There could very well be a vent without a cap. Even though most caps dont have mounting locations on the top.
