Why Hand-Nailed Shingles versus Air Gun Applied Nails or Staples? At Wayne Frier Macclenny and Live Oak Homes, we hand nail our shingles so they will last longer and be more consistent and better fastened. You might think that using a nail gun would be how we do it, but nail guns are over powered for this job and can be too rough. Even though hand nailing takes longer we do it because it’s the right way, and ensures your roof made to last.
We know the roof is one of the most important parts of your home, by going the extra mile and hand nailing, we make sure you get the maximum performance out of your shingles. Always check to make sure your shingles are hand nailed, as opposed to applied with Air Guns and Staples.
