Photo odd question

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.

thank you all for the replies, even the wise guy. It turned out to belong to the attic fan and has been replaced. thanks!
