All shingles today are designed to receive a pneumatic-driven nail. It's important for each pneumatic nail gun and compressor to be calibrated multiple times during a job to prevent over-driven and under-driven nails, which can lead to nails popping through shingles over time. It can also lead to loose shingles and missing shingles on your Charlotte home.
Hand nailing isn't always consistent in the installation process. Think about swinging your arm thousands of times a day in the same exact motion. Your arm would become fatigued over time, and you wouldn't be able to apply the same amount of force to each nail.
When calibrated correctly, a pneumatic nail gun will deliver consistent force to each nail head. In turn, that will give you a properly installed roof. By using the right tools, you could be saving time and money down the road.
