You’d think that is the goal with every roofing company. Right? Well, you might be surprised. Several roofing contractors find it much easier to just use a nail gun. Yup. It can save them a lot of time. But a trigger happy nail gunner can leave you with an unsecure roof.

These three areas may require more or less pressure to drive the nail without going all the way through or sticking out of the asphalt shingle. Not to mention, a nail gun does not easily change the pressure as needed. This can cause the nail to partially bounce out of place. It will also drive the nail improperly unless the roofer keeps it at just the right angle. This can be a difficult process when lugging the nail gun and air hose around an angled roof top. In contrast, a simple but professional roofing hammer gives our experts complete control of every single shingle. It’s pretty simple, we just take the time and effort to do the job right the first time.
