New roof did not pass inspection


So when I replace this roof, I will discuss about getting 8d nails in place of the staples. That could be part of the problem with the roof now.

The home inspector also told me that he doesn’t recommend replacing large sections of shingles to repair this roof because the new shingles will have a different color appearance from the existing shingles, something about they have different lot numbers.


We use exterior decking screws on all our redecks for the last 5 yrs or so. Always know if you miss…won’t ever rust…and guaranteed not to back out. Staples work great…but don’t meet most codes.
