Decking Re-Nail

Once all of the old roof materials have been removed we can re-nail the decking.  Florida building code requires the roofer to check for proper nailing.  The current requirement is a 8d full ring shank nail every spaced six inches.  Most homes built 15+ years ago need the decking re-nailed.

Only after the city/county inspects our decking re-nail may we begin installing shingles.  We normally receive the decking re-nail and underlayment (dry-in) inspection at the same time.
