You may find it interesting to know that many roof leaks are caused by the roofing nails that fasten shingles to your roof.
The problem occurs with nails being driven into the wrong places or too many nails being used to do the job.
Inexperienced roofers think that more nails will aid in preventing roofing leaks by securing down the shingles with more nails. Yes, you should make sure to adequately secure material down. But an excess of nails isn’t the answer.
Part of the solution is nailing down in the right locations.
The concept of roofing is simple – directing water over overlapping material to get it off of your roof. When you penetrate the material you’re using with excessive roofing nails, you’re creating unnecessary holes. These holes can cause unnecessary leaking.
Don’t assume that you can use caulk or tar to keep water from getting through.
It’s better to use common sense and prevent the hole to start with than risk leaks and making more work for yourself.
