Step 5: Nailing & sealing

Proper fastening is essential for a good roof.

  • Drive the nails straight so that the nail heads are flush with, but not cutting into the shingle surface;
  • During cold weather application extra cement must be added in the same manner;
  • Apply ONLY a thin uniform layer of asphalt plastic cement less than 3 mm thick and 25 mm up from the bottom of the shingle;
  • Excess amounts can cause blistering and sticking of the shingles!
  • Nail positioning : use 4 nails per shingle placed in the nailing lane, approximately 2,5 cm and 33 cm in from each end.

Note: Steep slope application (> 60°) require extra nails (six nails per shingle)
