I can understand the relation between low nails & high nails but isn’t there a certain place that these roofing nails "should "be?
Let’s put it in my perspective.I’m a former homebuilder who switched into the landscape / hardscape business in 1992 ( keep me on the ground!). When I install a 900 sq. ft. paver patio, the entire patio is pitched the correct way. If I have areas that dip and allow water to stand, I have failed in my attempt to properly install this patio. then my customer comes to me and says, “Did you know there’s 2 or 3 areas where water stands?” Well, let me just fix it. OK problem fixed, but I still messed up the job. That’s why I make sure to compact & screed until I KNOW it will be right.
You see, it’s not just about 55 nails. It’s about all of the service industry trying to police themselves and set some type of higher standards that will seperate the bad from the good from the elite. Roofing, framing, landscaping, plumbing, it doesn’t matter. There’s always going to be hacks out there but that doesn’t mean we should settle for mediocrity just to GET THE CHECK.I guess it just depends on what you consider the highest quality work. I know if I was a roofing company, I wouldn’t settle for any nails placed where they shouldn’t be. And they shouldn’t be placed where you can see them.
