Why Use A Coil Roofing Nailer For Roofing Tasks?


For professional roofers and contractors tackling steep-slope roofing installations with asphalt shingles, roofing felts, insulation boards, and house wraps, a dedicated coil roofing nailer is going to be the ideal pneumatic tool choice in the vast majority of cases.
A coil roofing nailer is a pneumatic tool designed specifically for roofing applications. It is powered by compressed air and uses a coil of nails, typically ranging from 7/8 inches to 1-3/4 inches in length. These nails are collated, meaning they are held together in a plastic or wire strip, allowing for continuous and rapid nailing.
The Advantages of Coil Roofing Nailers
High Capacity and Rapid Firing
One of the primary advantages of a quality coil roofing nailer is its ability to drive a large number of nails quickly and efficiently. Typical coil nailers can hold between 120-400 nails or more in their integrated wire coil magazine. This high capacity reduces the frequency of reloads, allowing you to stay in a smooth nailing rhythm.
The rapid-fire nature of coil nailers, combined with their high nail capacity, makes them incredibly productive for large roofing jobs. You'll be able to cover significant areas much faster compared to using a smaller sequential trigger nailer.
Consistent Nailing Power and Depth Control
Powered by a pneumatic air system, coil roofing nailers provide consistent driving force to set nails at the perfect depth, flush with the roofing material. This is achieved through a combination of adjustable depth control mechanisms and the steady pressure supplied by an air compressor.
Uniform nail seating is crucial for a proper roofing installation that won't leave protruding nails or dimples that could lead to leaks down the road. The power and depth consistency of coil nailers helps ensure a reliable, weathertight roofing system.
Specialty Fastener and Roofing Material Compatibility
Most coil roofing nailers are optimized to fire specialized roofing nails made from smoother galvanized wire. These nails are heat-treated to improve their gripping strength in roof decks and trusses. They also have larger, more secure head designs to firmly anchor roofing materials.
The improved compatibility with roofing materials is another major advantage. We carefully tune these nailers to properly set every type of approved roofing nail into asphalt shingles, underlayment, roof deck protection, flashing, and more without cracking or damage.
In contrast, using basic framing nailers and smooth nails on roofing runs a higher risk of overdriving nails, creating holes, and compromising the integrity of water-protecting layers. Potential leaks and structural issues could then develop over time.
When is a Coil Roofing Nailer the Best Choice?
Large-Scale Residential Roofs
If you're re-roofing an average-sized house or installing a new roof on a large multi-bedroom home, a coil roofing nailer is likely the most efficient and cost-effective solution. The combination of high nail capacity, firing speed, and consistent nail-setting ability will allow your crew to complete the job faster compared to other nailing methods.
Commercial Roofing Projects
Commercial roofs involve massive square footage and often require driving thousands upon thousands of nails. Whether re-roofing or new construction, the rapid-fire nature and high capacity of coil roofing nailers make them indispensable for these large-scale projects. Their speed and productivity can translate into significant labor cost savings.
Steep-Slope and Complex Roofs
Coil roofing nailers have a definite advantage when tackling roofs with steep pitches, multi-dimensional designs, or complex valley and ridge details. Their lightweight, balanced construction allows you to maneuver around obstacles andwork securely on pitches while maintaining a consistent nail pattern. The last thing you want is to struggle with an unbalanced or heavy nailer that compromises your safety.
