Why We Hand Nail

Why you don’t see Atlanta Roofing Specialists using nail guns on your roof.

Hand Nailing Is FAR Superior To Nail Guns

The head of the hand nail is bigger, thus you get a stronger roof against wind force. Conversely, the head of the nail for a NAIL GUN is smaller in order to fit more nails into the coil that is reloaded repeatedly into the nail guns.

 Bigger is Better.

Every nail is hammered with a hand hammer. This ensures that the nails are applied  correctly; straight & flush with the shingle. Invariably, on every roof applied with a gun, 100% of the time, there will be nails that:

  • Go into the shingle too far (penetrate the shingle)
  • Do not go far enough where the nail will be sticking up enough to wear a leak hole
  • There will be nails driven at an angle where the head cuts through the shingle because the roofer is swinging the nail gun.
