Screws vs Nails
Not all fasteners are created equal. To ensure the best quality for our customers, the team at Superior Steel Roofing Systems has invested in using screws as an alternative to nails during the installation our steel shakes. While this may seem like a minor variance for the additional cost and time, these innovative changes can actually make a drastic difference in extending the lifetime of your roofing system and preventing costly repairs.
While the argument can be made that high-quality nails can resist the application of shear force, the actual damage to roofing system is slowly applied over time. The standard practice of using wood strapping means that as the wood dries and expands from exposure and age, it will try to ejected the selected fastener. The threading from a screw can resist this ejection force where a nail alone could not. This processes of ejection, referred to as pull out, is the reason screws can be seen on high quality installations of decking or drywall. Screws are the preferred choice in application after application.
Screws are the Superior Choice
One solution that is often offered for nails is to leave the top part of the nails exposed so they do not pull out under the direct stress of expansion. Not only does this fail in its goal, it also increases the distance between the nail and the roof which can cause can cause roof leakages and other problems including a reduced aesthetic value. At Superior Steel Roofing Systems, we have specially designed our steel shakes to reduce the impact of any expansion and contraction our steel roofs experience. Any remaining stress is absorbed by the color matched washers on the screws, which ensure a tight seal between the screw head and the steel shake. These superior materials and the additional time to ensure it is properly secured promises a beautiful and enduring end product for many years to come.
