The Weighting Is The Hardest Part
Talk to Pros and they will tell you that weight is the most important consideration when choosing a roofing nailer. Securing shingles and siding is an all day or multiple day job.

A roofing nailer is an essential item to have but it isn't the only tool you'll need to carry out some basic maintenance work on your roof.
