Mastering the Roof: Nail Placement

Roofing Shingles

The importance of Nail Placement is a significant factor of an experienced roofer versus an inexperienced one. Of the many hours of manufacturer training that make our team the best roofers for the top brands, nailing pattern is a key example of how we look to always exceed standards. We ensure our customers have the strongest roofs by nailing in a way that withstands wind. Also the right amount of nails will prevent any excess water from entering the home. During your initial inspection it's likely that we will identify key issues like these that may be resolved by a repair or replacement.

DIY Blunders Versus Professional Skills

Roofing experts know there are specific numbers of nails for each type of shingles. If you make a mistake and nail 6 per shingle instead of 4, you’ll have wasted time, money, and effort. Worse yet, every nail hole is an opportunity for water to enter the home. To avoid all this, pay careful attention to the manufacturer specs. Still, with a job at hand, speed is everything. Nailing to the right cadence for both accuracy and quality is a critical part of the roofing process.

Confidence in your Manufacturer and Installer

According to Owens Corning, manufacturer of SureNail technology, the unique fabric strip in the nailing area provides outstanding gripping power. The bottom of the asphalt shingles have an adhesive strip that lays on top of the nails and seals the nail holes. In fact, having a proper nail pattern with Duration shingles from Owens Corning is so important that it could violate the warranty if it's not installed properly. We work with the best manufacturers to deliver the best roofing systems so that you can be confident they will stand the test of time and weather.

Check out the Owens Corning SureNail lab tests to see these shingles in action against wind resistance.
