Some roofers use 4 nails but 3 is also fine.

Re: Some Good Roofers Lol

Keep in mind, the instructions on the the shingle wrapper. If the shingles aren't installed per mfg. specifications, there is no warranty.

Can you show me where a mfg. recommends 3 nails per shingle?

Hopefully you were kidding.

Re: Some Good Roofers Lol

I would always expect 4-6 nails per shingle! Will three hold? I know some people use three, but I always figured that was in countries with next to no adverse weather.

Can't believe they don't use ridge vents, either... That roof is going to be falling apart in a couple of years, if not before. Might as well take the time to do it properly from the get-go... I see costly repairs in the near future.
