Staples were common around here 20 yrs ago, but are not to be found anymore. Staples tend to pump out with temp changes, & on some conditions, tend to rust out the small wire faster than nails. I used staples on my own home 22 years ago, & noticed that some pumped out. Originally, they were all perfectly flat.
Just my .02
I was a foreman for a roofing company for 7 years back in the 1990's we used Hilti staple guns. The builders would always call us back to repair wind damaged roofs. The roofing company was doing 500-600 house a month, high volume piece work. A solution had to be discovered quickly. A few sub crews were using bostich nail guns. They were not getting hardly any call backs. The rest is history. We soon converted all crews to hilti nail guns. We had very few call backs for wind damage. Nails are superior to staples.
