Don’t add just any roofing magnet to your toolbox…
...make it a professional tool built to last.
A roofing magnet is a valuable tool to add to any roofers’ equipment to help you leave your roofing site clean and your customer’s happy. But the last thing you want is another tool that is a cheap piece of junk and doesn’t get the job done or doesn’t last.
Our top picks and “best magnetic sweepers for roofers” are listed below. These sweepers are designed for the roofing application and are for roofer who demand a tool that is tough and durable and has some real quality to it. We’ve added specific features to some models that roofer’s will love including the “wrap around” design that prevents nails from being wiped off the sweeper and the quick release handle system for quick and easy clean off.
And most of all every model has a solid, sturdy feel to it that makes using it a real pleasure.
Should you buy a roofing magnet with the most pickup power?
Before buying a roofing magnet based only on pickup power, keep in mind that not every application needs the most power. Some applications may benefit from having more features rather than power. Some roofers want a tool that is light and compact that they can easily put behind the seat of their pickup truck. A light tool may have enough pickup power because you may not have to clean a very large job site and it may be acceptable to pass over an area several times.
However, if you’re wondering about pickup power and are looking for the biggest, baddest magnet possible then you’ll want to know that Bluestreak measures pickup power in terms of the “maximum lifting height using a two and a half inch nail”. Everyone knows what a two and a half inch nail looks like. This measure indicates the maximum height that the sweeper can pick up a two and half inch nail from in a bench test. This is the best indication of performance and pickup power.
Below are the maximum lifting height measurements of our Roofer Magnet selection.

Quick Tip #1
What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of roofing magnets?
Does Width Matter?
Keep in mind the width of a magnet doesn’t affect it’s pickup power. So a Magnum 20 width is just as strong as a Magnum 25 or a Magnum 31.
Look for the "Wrap Around" feature
All of Bluestreak’s roofing magnets have a design feature called “Wrap Around”. This is the most important feature affecting performance. It ensures that grass doesn’t wipe debris off the bottom of the sweeper.
Best Magnetic Sweepers for Roofers
Why buy a roofing magnet?
Roofers are tapping into the additional value of adding a roofing magnet to their toolbox. The need for roofers to utilize magnetic sweepers has always existed but the use of magnetic sweepers by roofers continues to grow due to concerns from homeowners about roofing nails left in the grass and on the site after the job is done. There are also some liability concerns over injuries caused by a roofers’ nails left at the site.
Some professional roofers are using this clean up service to their advantage and differentiating themselves on the quality of their cleanup efforts because it’s the one aspect of their service that the customer is able to evaluate well and it’s the one thing they mention in word of mouth comments about their roofing job.
Roofers wanting to cash in on positive word of mouth advertising and referrals are using the quality of their clean up job as a point of differentiation.
