Lately it is not uncommon to see roofing manufacturer's warranties on asphalt composition shingles to be 40 or 50 years. This fact should make one think about the fasteners used to install the roof. Unlike caulking which can be maintained over the years, nails used in these applications should be considered permanent. Are you using a fastener that will hold up throughout the duration of the roofing manufacturer's warranty? Amazingly enough more than a few roofers are still using Electro Galvanized Coil Roofing Nails on these 40 to 50 years roofs. It is true that Electro Galvanized Coil Roofing Nails, while in their proper application, still serve a purpose. However, if you are installing a roofing system with a longer warranty the only lasting solution is to use a fastener that properly equals the quality and longevity of the shingles being installed. For applications like these we recommend using, at minimum, Hot Dipped Galvanized Coil Roofing Nails.
Old World Hot Dipping referred to as HDG grade on our website. HDG grade nails are first cut to length and heads formed from a large spool of brite steel wire rod. Then nails are Hot Dipped into Molten Zinc until a thick uniform coating is achieved across the entire surface of the nail. Next, the nails are either packaged in bulk or collated together into strips or coils. Our HDG Nails meet and or exceed the ASTM A153 Class D Fastener specification.
The nails we feature on this page are 15 degree wire collated. Smooth and ring shank nails are available. Rink shank nails in particular offer a stronger holding power due to its annular ridges that help prevent the nail from backing out over time.
Manufactured specifically for the roofing industry, these A153-D Hot Dip Galvanized Nails can be used to install asphalt and fiberglass shingles in new roofs and reroofing projects. They are also applicable for attaching waterproof tar paper, roofing felt, and metal drip edges, among others.
However, despite meeting the minimum requirement for ACQ-treated lumber, we do not recommend our coil roofing hot-dipped galvanized nails for this type of wood. Stainless steel nails are better suited for ACQ-treated lumber.
