hot dipped galvanized roofing nailsRoofing nails are clout nails that are utilized in roof installation to fasten shingles, attach roof tiles and sheet metal, and install roofing felt. They are nails with short shanks and wide flat heads. Nails for roofing are made of different materials and come in various sizes. They are graded based on their gauge and length. The former refers to the diameter of the wire used to manufacture the nail, which is between 10 and 12. Nails are available in lengths from 1 to 2 inches.

Application of Roofing Nails

As what the term suggests, roofing nails are mainly used in installation of roofs. Below are just some of the uses of nails for roofing.

nails for roofingThe nails are used to fasten shingles to the roof. Two of the common nails used to secure shingles are aluminum roofing nails and galvanized roofing nails. But if the roof is exposed to salty mist or air, then you should use aluminum nails for roofing. The recommended gauge of the nail used to fasten shingles must be 11 to 12. When it comes to the shank length, it depends on the material used. For asphalt or fiberglass shingles, you must use 1-inch roofing nails. If you are re-roofing over existing shingles, then you need to use 1 1/4 inch nails. Wood shingles are thicker and require longer nails.

The material is used to prevent moisture from damaging the structure. Roofing felt nails are commonly used to secure the waterproofing material.

Another use of nails for roofing is to attach sheet metal to wood, such as installing flashing to the roof。 Flashing is important because it stops water from seeping into the joints and seams。 Roofing nails are used to install flashing because they can easily penetrate through wood and stainless steel。

Types of Roofing Nails

Aluminum roofing nails are ideal for metal shingles and roofs but not recommended if you are living in an area that will expose the roof to salt or chemicals. Stainless steel roofing nails are perfect for coastal areas and can be used to install slate and tiles. Copper roofing nails are used for general roofing purposes. Hot dipped galvanized roofing nails are steel nails coated with zinc. They are designed to prevent rust and used to fasten asphalt shingles.

Ring shank roofing nails have bigger nail heads and made of galvanized steel. They are ideal for fastening shingles in locations with strong winds. Smooth shank nails are the most common one used. They are also the cheapest ones on the market.
