  • Nailing Versus Stapling For Roof Shingles

    If you work in or around the U.S. roofing industry, an age-old question you are bound to hear - which is better, nailing or stapling roofing shingles? Get expert advice on both options, as well as tips to calculate materials usage and more!

    Let's start with stapling.

    In the past, when it came to the debate of roofing nails versus staples, the industry was split down the middle. After all, it's no surprise roofers loved staples for attaching shingles to roofing. Staples cost less than nails, offer exceptional holding strength, and cover a greater area of space with a more versatile and compact collation. Paired with the fact staplers are typically easier to handle than a coil nailer - and a stapler is less complex to repair - it's easy to see why stapling would be the preferred method for fastening shingles.

    Senco RoofPro 455XP Roofing Nailer

    PRO TIP: When estimating nail or staple usage for your roofing project, you should budget 400 nails or staples per square. Breaking it down further, you'll typically use four fasteners per 3-tab shingle. However, always consult your local building authority for exact code requirements.

    Bostitch Roofing Nailer

    Flash forward to present day, where coil roofing nails dominate the market. But what changed?

    Within the last two decades, the roofing industry has shifted its preference toward the roofing nail. What's ironic, it can actually be argued the staple has better holding power compared to the nail. Nonetheless, here's why coil roofing nails have gained such popularity over staples.

    Hitachi NV45AB2 Coil Roofing Nailer

    While many factors have led modern roofers to use nails more often than staples, the strongest argument doesn't actually involve the quality of either fastener, but rather depends on the patience and precision of the end user. The problem with attaching a shingle to roof using staples, if the positioning of the staple is not perpendicular to the shingle itself, holding strength is greatly compromised. Staples are also much easier to over-drive, or under-drive, both scenarios that can further contribute to holding issues. With roofing nails this issue doesn't exist, because the nail has a round head - just make sure the nail gets driven straight into the shingle.

    Other benefits to using coil roofing nails include higher capacity magazine load, adjustable depth of drive on most roofing nailers, and most roofing nails maintain a universal design for ease of compatibility.

    In some areas of the U.S. today, staples have even been banned from shingle to roof installation, due to the likelihood of improper installation. Depending on region, other regulations may dictate type of galvanization or coating, or even require stainless steel in coastal areas. As always, please confirm code requirements with your local building authority prior to starting a project.

  • Q & A: The Difference Between Brad vs. Finish Nails

    Question: "What's the difference between a brad nail and a finish nail? Which one is the best choice for my job?"

    Answer: To start, let's consider the differences between brads (brad nails) and finish nails.

    Brad nails are formed from a fine 18 gauge wire, which means they are smaller in diameter and typically have less holding strength. The benefit to an 18 gauge brad is its size. Thanks to a smaller head and diameter, brad nails are easier to conceal in small pieces of wood trim. With a smaller head size, it's possible that the insertion point may not even need to be concealed with wood putty. Their size also helps prevent surface splitting, which could occur if the fastener is too large for the material it is being nailed into. In other words, 18 gauge brad nails provide a cleaner look without extra touch-up.

    Senco Brad Nails

    The downside to a brad is its holding power. Finish nails are made from heavier 15 or 16 gauge wire, which means they can handle a greater payload. For larger trim, such as baseboards or crown molding, a finish nail is more suitable. Because it leaves a more visible hole in the surface, a fully driven finish nail almost always requires followup attention - which includes being puttied over to conceal the "shiner" [a term representing the exposed insertion point of a nail]. In all, the finish nail offers increased support and withdrawal resistance versus the brad nail, making it the better choice when installing larger trim and woodwork.

    Senco DA Finish Nails

    According to SENCO, "The initial tool purchased by most consumers is typically some kind of brad nailer for attaching finish molding. Most who have used a hammer to drive small brads know the frustration when these nails bend - not to mention the possibility for damage if using too much force. The brad nailer makes these small trim jobs a breeze, with high-quality results."

    Brad vs. Finish Nail Comparison

    The fact is, most carpenters use a combination of finish and brad tools. If you're just getting started, it's probably best to compare your application against the tools you are considering. From there, consider the tool that will suit your overall needs best.

  • A New Way To Do Decking - Senco's Deck Clip System

    It's finally time to shed the winter layers and get back outside. For many, the start of May means the start to decking season - and depending on Winter's wear and tear, that might also mean it's time to give your deck some much needed TLC. If you're considering upgrading your deck, there's a new product on the market you don't want to miss - Senco's Mantis hidden deck clip system.

    Senco Mantis SHD150XP

    A relatively new concept to the deck building industry, hidden fastening systems are leading an increasingly popular trend in decking. The new Senco-Mantis system is no exception.

    Senco Mantis Deck Clips

    Senco's system can be utilized in two ways, either by driving individual screws into their respective Mantis deck clip (with use of screwdriver motor), or by using the all-new SHD150XP (9D0001N) collated nailer, which drives 1-1/2" collated reversible fasteners into the Mantis hidden deck clip.

    Senco Hidden Deck System

    Designed for use with composite, PVC and other grooved deck boards, Senco's hidden deck fasteners employ a three-clip system. A starter clip is used to get the first board locked into place, which then allows the Mantis clip to secure all remaining boards into position. When reaching the final board, finishing clips complete the installation.

    Senco Deckclip Installation

    For those that opt to use the collated fasteners, the Senco SHD150XP looks like most other paper tape nailers, but is designed specifically for use with this Senco deck clip system. A patented EZ slide attachment will guide and align the Mantis deck clips into their proper place. When compared to conventional installation equipment, the SHD150XP is easier to handle - and improves productivity up to 80 percent. This pneumatic decking gun also features an industrial strength magnet to keep the deck clip in place, dry-fire lockout, sequential actuation, tool-free adjustable exhaust reflector and adjustable rafter hook. Bundle that with a five-year limited warranty to keep your tool on the job.
