handnailingWhy Hand Nailing is Better:

  1. When hand-nailing, a conscientious roofer can feel whether he is driving the nail into the roof boards or between the boards, and immediately adjust his nail position.
  2. The target nail area on a shingle is very narrow. Gun-nailing is unlikely to result over 80% accuracy. It is important to have 98-100% accuracy in a high-wind area such as Cape Ann.
  3. Hand-nailing ensures that nails are driven flush with the shingle and perpendicular to the roof deck. Gun-nails are prone to bad positioning (over-driving, under-driving, incorrect gun-angle) due to the fast pace of roofing with a nail-gun.
  4. Hot-dipped galvanized roofing nails with larger heads (a great choice for a seacoast proximity roof) are not available for nail guns.

Gun-nailing shingles during a roof job is faster, more convenient, and less expensive, but will result in a less wind-resistant roof.
