What type of nails?


Postby buttwhy » Thu Jun 03, 2010 11:26 am

Super quick question for people. I'm replacing a slate roof.
Can someone tell me the differences between using copper versus aluminuim nails. Obviously price but are they the same to work with and do they last as long as each other and finally do either stain the slates.

Stick with copper they are harder and will last longer.
