What are the advantages of hand nailing?It is indisputable in the roofing industry that a hand nailed roof job will always produce a better finished product. That isn't to say that a roof installed with a pneumatic nail gun can't result in a good job. Unfortunately when nail guns are involved the margin for error tends to rise. The average asphalt shingle is about 3/16" of an inch. It isn't unreasonable to think that with a pneumatic nail gun a nail could be overdrive/underdriven by 1/16" of an inch due to pressure variations within the compressor or hoses. That would appear to be within tolerance for many things, but it's not when fastening a shingle to a roof. A properly nailed shingle needs to have the finished nail flush with the face of the shingle. The only way to insure that happens with a high percentage of consistency is with a hammer. There are a lot of variables that create inconsistencies when using nail guns. If you have multiple guns/hoses attached to a single compressor (which is the norm) pressure fluctuations can occur when guns are fired simultaneously or in sync before the pressure regulates. Another factor is that it requires a different pressure (PSI) to drive a nail based upon the density & rigidity of what you are nailing in to. For example it takes a different ideal pressure to drive a nail in a roof on a rafter versus what it takes dead center of a rafter on a roof with thin decking 24" on center. It's no surprise that there isn't a built in safeguard for this variation. So while pneumatic nailers have become industry standard for roofing installation that doesn't change the fact that discriminating homeowners see the value in a quality hand nailed roof installation.
