Why We Hand Nail Our Shingles
We may be the only roofing company in Juneau that nails shingles and underlayments by hand, as in with a hammer. The hand-nailing method insures that every nail is seated properly and not blown completely through the shingle or underlayment product. It is faster to use a pneumatic (compressed air) nail-gun, but varying air-pressure produces countless over-driven, under-driven, or crooked nails. These improperly driven nails have no holding power and lead to slow weeping leaks that feed attic mold and produce rot. Weeping leaks often go undetected because they are so slow and don’t drip into the living space, all the while irrigating the mold and causing damage. We replace a lot of nail-gunned shingle roofs that are less than 10 years old because of these problems. We believe hand-nailing sets us apart from the competition and is a driving force of our strong reputation for providing long lasting, quality roof systems.
Metal Roofing/Gutter Products Available
We utilize three concealed fastener metal roof panel forming machines and one mobile gutter forming machine. We have a full metal shop to fabricate any custom flashings you may need. We also custom make our own flashings for any roof we install. We stock many colors in 26 gauge steel to make your roofing panels, flashings, and gutters. We can quickly fabricate custom tailored metal roof packages for Juneau and surrounding areas with a focus on getting the products to you un-damaged.
