Cleaning up roofing nails

  • from Fairfax (Virginia, United States)

Found in the yard


Jane & Ellen

Land/stock AT Pro. Land search, items recovered. 2 hours.

My lovely neighbors Jane & Ellen, (and their four footed owners Agi and Riley),had their roof replaced. Although the crew did a careful clean-up, my friends were concerned about missed roofing nails which could hurt the always active, Agi & Riley. I swept through the yard, trying my best to ignore any deeper signals. I spent a couple of hours and found about 40 nails and staples, bits of wire, a drill bit, and some trash. Although I tried to ignore the deeper targets, I couldn’t help it, and I dug a couple of clad coins from 5 or 6 inches down. As you can see in the photo, one of the nails has a square cap. I found that one in the back yard by a swinging bench. Not only was it pretty far from the roof, it was sticking straight up on packed mulch. Anyone (human or dog) who stepped on that would have noticed! I am so happy Jane and Ellen asked me to do this for them. Before, it hadn’t occurred to me that this would be a useful service. Everyone was very appreciative. I even got a thank you card from Agi & Riley!

If I can be of service, the fastest way to get me is by text at 703-598-1435. I will contact you back ASAP.

    So glad Rob was available to check our yard. He worked for several hours on a very hot day to assure that the yard was free from roofing nails and other hazardous items. Amazing what he discovered even though the roofing company had swept the yard with their magnet rake. Thanks ever so much!
