  • A Guide To Senco Roofing Nailers

    When it comes to the "big" nail guns - framing, roofing, siding - many contractors trust Senco to get the job done. For roofers, Senco has a couple options in their RoofPro series of roofing nailers, the 445XP and the 455XP. Find out what makes Senco RoofPro nailers unique, by exploring the Nail Gun Network.
    Senco RoofPro Roofing Nailer
    What's the difference between Senco's RoofPro 445XP and 455XP roofing nailers, you ask? Well, to be honest, very little. The two tools offer a small list of subtle differences, but are very similar in how the operate overall. The biggest difference between these two pneumatic roofing nailers, air consumption. The 455XP is a slightly larger nail gun, and uses about twice as much air to keep it running. The extra air could provide slightly more driving power than the 445XP, but for many, the difference won't be significant enough to sway preference.
    The Senco RoofPro 445XP coil roofing nailer (8V0001N), drives 3/4" to 1-3/4" roofing nails. With a five-year manufacturer's warranty included out of the box, the 445XP features a thumbwell adjustable depth of drive, aluminum body for durability, and a bi-metal driver blade for reduced wear. A unique two-piece firing valve allows for reduced air consumption without compromise on power or speed, and a power in/power out pneumatic feed system improves speed and delivers consistent drives. An adjustable/removable shingle guide, adjustable nail canister, comfort grip, and steel wear plates are among other options offered on this coil roofing nailer that improve usability. Combine all this with an easily serviceable design - all wearable parts are accessible from the top of tool - and you are set for success. The Senco RoofPro 445XP is perfect for asphalt and fiberglass shingle nailing, for both new roofs and re-roofing - ideal for attaching waterproof tar paper, metal drip edges, insulation board, and with a special optional attachment, vinyl and aluminum siding.
    Senco RoofPro 445XP
    The Senco RoofPro 455XP air-powered coil roofing nailer (3D0101N), drives 3/4" to 1-3/4" roofing nails. Also toting a five-year manufacturer's warranty, the 455XP includes a case, oil and wrench. This roofing nailer features a tool-free adjustable depth of drive, adjustable shingle guide, aluminum body for longer life, and steel wear plates to reduce shingle wear on the tool. The Senco 455XP is specifically recommended for asphalt and fiberglass shingles, waterproof tar paper, new roofs, re-roofing, insulation board and siding - when using with a siding attachment.
    Senco RoofPro 455XP
    Choose from a variety of roofing nailers, framing nailers, siding nail guns and more on Nail Gun Depot. Several manufacturers including a full-line of Senco products available to choose from. Don't wait - check them out now!

  • Everything You Need To Know About Roofing Nailers

    Warmer, dryer weather means one thing - roofing season is here. At Nail Gun Depot, we've decided to dedicate the entire month of May to roofers, roofing, and everything in between. Join us as we explore everything you need to know about roofing nailers and other roofing tools - when you enter the Nail Gun Network.
    Senco RoofPro 455XP
    What makes a roofing nailer different from any other type of nail gun? The difference is in the detail. Roofing guns are built to drive nails that are appropriate for most types of asphalt and fiberglass shingles, waterproof tar paper and insulation board. Whether you are installing a new roof, or re-roofing, roofing nailers are built specifically for what they are named.
    A key feature shared between roofing guns, they are designed to drive coil nails - coil roofing nails to be precise. By using coil nails, roofing nailers can go longer between refills - reducing the need to stop and climb off a rooftop to refill the nailer's magazine. A coil magazine design also helps improve the tool's ergonomics, making it less awkward to maintain hold of while crawling around on a roof.
    MAX CN445R2 Features
    Don't be fooled, quality means everything for a roofing nailer. Most roofing contractors use their tools on a daily basis during peak roofing season, so it's essential that the tool you purchase is dependable and provides several years of worry-free service. When it comes to roofing nailers, trust the guys who know the business best. Senco offers two excellent roofing tools, the 445XP and the 455XP - paired with a five-year manufacturer's warranty for added peace of mind. The Hitachi NV45AB2 is another popular model that has withstood the test of time. Last, but certainly not least, the MAX CN445R2 (replaced by MAX CN445R3) offers roofing contractors the affordability of a competitive price point, paired with the durability of a construction-grade tool. Any of the roofing nailers we've listed above should provide several years of excellent service.
    When it comes to installing roof felt, cap coil nailers, also known as plastic cap nailers, are pivotal to any roofing operation. Cap nailers drive a coil nail in tandem with plastic cap, providing additional holding strength and protection versus a standard nail. Stinger also offers a series of cap staplers that are designed to do the same - only with staples instead of nails.
    Stinger CN100 Cap Nailer
    Next to roofing nailers, hammer tackers (hammer staplers) are a necessity for any installation where roofing paper will need to be laid before shingles are nailed into place. These slap staplers work the same way as a standard hammer, only instead of pounding a nail into place, the impact of a hammer tacker triggers the firing of a staple into the surface with which it makes contact.

  • Troubleshooting Roof Damage Caused By Winter Weather

    We've survived another winter. As temperatures continue to rise and spring flowers blossom, some will find that winter has left one final reminder of its presence - roof damage. Find out what you need to look for once the snow has melted, to catch minor issues before they turn into major repairs. Discover how to locate and repair roof problems triggered by winter weather, when you enter the Nail Gun Network.
    Gutter Ice
    While weather in general will gradually take its toll on a roof over time, it's been found that roof problems frequently stem specifically from winter weather. The convergence of warm and cold, ice, and snow increases the amount of wear and tear on a roof. Take a look at these causes for winter roof damage.
    • Ice Dams: As melted snow refreezes and turns to ice, it typically builds up wherever there is an angle or corner in the roof - where the water has room to pool. If gutters are clogged or do not have adequate drainage, this can compound the problem. Ice dams create several potential problems. From a safety standpoint, they present potential danger to anyone that is standing below them, in the event they separate from the roof and fall. From a structural standpoint, ice dams create a significant amount of extra weight collecting at the same spot. Over the course of winter, this can loosen shingles and cause damage to gutters or woodwork that is directly exposed to this weathering agent. The additional weight can also cause structural stress - leading to leaks and possible structural damage.
    • Snow Accumulation: Small amounts of snow can actually insulate from the cold, but large accumulation (especially wet, heavy snow) creates extra weight that puts additional pressure on the roof frame and structure. Heavy snow can lead to cave-ins, collapses and other framing issues. There isn't much that can be done to prevent the amount of snow on your roof, but you can make sure your gutters and drains are flowing properly in the fall, to make sure that as snow melts it can flow away from the roof. Properly ventilating the area directly below your roof - typically an attic or crawlspace - will help to distribute heat equally, allowing snow that has accumulated on a roof to melt evenly and prevent refreezing or uneven snow melt.
    Stinger Cap Stapler
    Once the snow has melted, here's what you need to look for to see just how well your roof held up throughout the winter.
    • Loose Shingles: These are relatively easy to detect. Generally, you'll see any separation from the roof board. If the shingle has become completely separated from the roof structure, it will need to be patched or replaced with a new shingle.
    • Wood Rot: This is harder to detect. Unless a shingle has been completely removed, you probably won't see much rot. The shingle is designed to protect the wood sub-surface, so long as moisture is not able to build up underneath the shingle. In the event of ice damming, you might see damage to trimwork in the corners where ice accumulated.
    • Gutter Flow: If you noticed your gutters overflowed frequently during the winter, it might mean that the flow is being blocked by debris. It could also mean that your gutters are not large enough to handle the flow of water from your roof. It's extremely important to draw the water away from your home.
    • Leaking: Though this might seem like the easiest way to detect trouble, small leaks can often go unnoticed until they become big problems. Obviously, large damp spots on your ceiling will indicate water is coming inside. For smaller leaks, look for bubbling or discoloration in the ceiling. You can also check your attic or crawlspace to look for moisture entry.

  • What's A Cap Stapler/Nailer - And Why Should I Use One?

    If you work with housewrap or roofing underlayments, and you are still using a standard hammer-tacker, it's time to think about an upgrade that can improve the quality of your work - and ultimately increase productivity on the job. If you saw the title, you already know we're talking about adding a cap tool (stapler or nailer) to your arsenal. There are quite a few options available, including tools from Bostitch, Senco, Hitachi and Paslode, but one brand that specializes in cap nailers and cap staplers, Stinger Cap Systems' specifically designs their tools for applications that require a cap nail or cap staple.
     
    Stinger CN100
    What's the benefit of a cap fastener over a standard staple? The cap helps to protect and expand the surface area (holding power) of the fastener - which means the fastener is better able to withstand harsh weather conditions - protecting the housewrap or fabric from separating or tearing. Many manufacturers require capped fasteners be used with their wrap or felt, due to the increased strength and protection they provide. Cap tools can also be used for a variety of other applications including foam board installation, carpet padding and more. In other words, these tools are perfect for any material that is thick, but maintains a soft consistency.
     
    Stinger Cap Tool
    If you are looking at cap nailers, there are a couple good options available, which include the Hitachi NV50AP3 and Bostitch N66BC-1; if you are looking to drive a larger and wider range of fasteners. If you are looking for a smaller cap nail (1" to be precise), we suggest the Stinger CN100. Similar to a cap stapler, these tools are designed for roofing, sidewall and insulation board - check with the material manufacturer to determine whether a nail or staple is required for your application.
     
    Senco BC58
    Moving into cap staplers, a few of the more popular options, look to Senco's BC58 cap button stapler, Paslode's CS150 cap stapler, Pneu Tools Rap-A-Cap 58 (RC-58), and of course, Stinger brand cap tools - including the CH38 (manual fire), CH38A (auto fire) and CS150 (air-powered) cap tools. Depending on the material - and surface it is being installed to - you will need to determine whether a nail or staple is necessary for your application.
     
    Paslode CS150
    Before you buy a cap tool, be sure to consider these factors: manual vs. auto-firing tool; the role that tool weight and balance plays on your application; and the level of maneuverability required for the job. For heavy-duty, high-volume use, you will most likely choose an auto-fire cap tool. The benefit to a manual cap stapler, such as the Stinger CH38, the tool is lightweight and smaller in size - which makes it easier to maneuver. For most pneumatic variations of cap stapler, plan on any of the tools previously mentioned weighing between four and five pounds - before caps and staples have been loaded. Pneumatic tools also require an air compressor to operate, another factor that should be taken into consideration depending on the flexibility of your jobsite.
