Roofing Nails

Roofing Nails

Roofing nails are a necessary part required to complete many different types of roofing projects. These specialized types of nails are available in a variety of sizes and materials and are much more durable than traditional nails. 

It is important to use the correct roofing nails to ensure the shingles remain intact for a long time. Without the correct nails, overtime, you will have a roof full of popped nails and potentially loose shingles.

How to Determine What Type of Nails You Need

Just like traditional nails, the type of roofing nails you will need varies. 

It depends on:

  • What kind of material your roofing system is made of
  • What kind of shingles you have
  • What kind of climate and area your home is located in

Make sure to do your research before making a purchase. If you need help figuring out the right type of nails to use, contact SYL Roofing Supply for assistance.

Roofing Nail Shank

The “shank” of a roofing nail refers to its length. The size of a roofing nail is very important, and it is a determining factor of which nail to use. The shank of your roofing nails should be decided based on the materials of your roofing system and also the thickness of your roofing material.

Typical roofing nails are available in shanks up to 6”, but for most roofing projects, you’ll need nails with a shank between 1” – 2”. If you have fiberglass or asphalt shingles, go with 1” roofing nails. If you have thicker wood shingles, you’ll probably need to use roofing nails with a longer shank.
