How to prevent the roofing nails blowing off?

Nailing technique is the most important for the successful installing roofs. If the technique is right, the roof will be firm. On the contrary, it may cause a lot of troubles, including the nails blew off. Every nail should be in his proper place. Drive it to the place is a technical work. If the roofer fail to drive it to his place, the whole roof may face the serious damage. But what questions we may meet?

UNDERDRIVEN – If a nail is hammered not enough, it will poke through the top of the shingle in the layer above it, causing a leak.

OVERDRIVEN – If a nail is driven too deeply into the roof, this will create a hole and leak.

CROOKED – Drive a nail in at an angle to the shingle, and that nail will eventually protrude through the shingle above it, causing a hole, which means another leak.
