For roofs that have copper flashing to provide homes an extra layer of protection against the elements, copper roofing nails made from solid copper are preferred than other construction nails because of their proven durability and holding power. Although copper is more expensive than aluminum or galvanized steel, it is able to withstand more years of wear and tear, and will save you from having to spend on repair and maintenance costs in the long run.
Unlike concrete roofs, slate roof tiles are held together only by nails, which is why it is ideal to use copper slating nails for copper sheet metal applications instead of ordinary galvanized nails. Galvanized nails have a limited life span; they rust after the zinc coating wears off over time. Your slate roof is only as good as the nails used to hold it together, so it is crucial to use the right type. Don't take a chance by using nails that corrode, as this can put your roofing structure at risk and your home in danger. Your slate may slip down the roof and may be a cause of serious injury.
Using the correct nails for your roof will ensure its longevity and stability. Copper roofing nails not only last longer but also provide ease when removing a broken slate from your roof for fixing. The pointed tips of our nails provide easy insertion into a surface to help you minimize the risk of damaging your metal sheets. If your roof deck is made of plywood, the sharp diamond point of our copper nails also drive in smoothly so you avoid wood splintering.
Aside from roofs and sheet metal work, copper nails may also be used for clay and cement roofing tiles, copper gutters, decorative copper, copper metal fabrication, saddlery, and farrier work. For your slate roofs, choose the correct nail length by adding one inch to twice the thickness of your slates.
