The preparation of the roof deck and type of shingle being installed are both very important factors in determining the best fastening method for each roofing job. However, the quality of the roof system depends on the workmanship of the contractor more than the method of installation. Blame should be placed on the inexperience or carelessness of the installer when roof systems fail prematurely or shingles blow off. The outcome usually isn’t positive when a poor contractor is involved. Angie’s list and the BBB are good places to verify a contractor’s experience and reputation.
A good contractor will know which system will yield the best results, and at All Seasons Roofing we are confident that our system will work. All Seasons Roofing of Lynchburg, Virginia, uses both methods—hand nailing and pneumatic nail guns. With a 15 to 85% ratio, respectively, our professional contractors utilize both methods in order to ensure that each job is completed to perfection.
