Shingle roof


Hand nailing vs Nail guns

Brothers Roofing takes pride in offering hand nailed roofs. Though a client's roof can be completed in quicker time with nail guns, the quality may be compensated because of it. Listed are a few reasons why we choose the old school method of hand nailing shingles.


Hand Nailing

  • Roofers that hand nail can determine whether or not the nail catches the wood.
  • Hand nailing ensures accurate placement onto shingle.
  • Does not puncture completely through shingle.

Nail gun

  • Nail guns are not precise in placement.
  • High pressure guns cause the nail to lift during high winds.
  • Low pressure guns will result in the nail sticking up, causing leaks.
  • Roofers using pressured guns will rush with work, causing careless placement.
