The perk of using Copper Slate Roofing Nails

Why use Copper Nails?


Using the right nails plays a big factor on insuring the durability and longevity of a roof.


Copper nails are made of solid copper, giving them

durability and holding power. Mind you copper is more expensive

than aluminum or galvanized steel, it's able to withstand many more years

furthermore saving from having to spend more money on repair and

maintenance cost in the long run. Copper nails provide ease

when removing a slate tile that needs to be replaced.

Roofs with copper flashing and copper nails provide roofs a layer

of protection against algae and bacteria.



Slate roof tiles are typically held by only nails, which is why it's important to

use copper nails for both copper sheet metal and natural slate tiles instead of

ordinary galvanized nails. Galvanized nails have limited life span; and start

rusting after the zinc coasting wears off. With this said, your roof is only

as good as the nails used to hold it together, so it's very important to use

the right type. We don't recommend taking the chance by using nails that

are going to corrode, as this could put your roofing structure at risk.
