Number of nails per shingle

How many nails are there per shingle?

4

Specialists say that when shingling a roof, shingle nails need to be placed appropriately in order to keep elements out and the shingles on.  There are generally 4 nails per shingle.  Many people consider that 4 nails represent the right number of nails to do a quality job.  The main idea is that the placement of the nails is the most important in any roofing job.  Needless to say, it is important to know that the “nail line” is indicated on the shingles.  Furthermore, it locates the correct places to put nails.
