Hot Dipped Galvanized Nails Now Available From DaVinci Roofscapes
Want to nail your next DaVinci roofing project? Then opt for hot dipped galvanized (HDG) 1 1/2 inch nails with a minimum 3/8 inch head.
Made to last longer than electro galvanized (EG) nails thanks to a thicker zinc outer layer, HDG nails are submerged in molten zinc to get an even covering. Because the thick, smooth zinc coating on HDG nails is an advancement over EG nails, they’re even less likely to rust over time. That’s important because the DaVinci roof you install will last for decades … and you want the nails to last that long too!
An added benefit is that HDG nails generally achieve higher ratings on salt spray tests and are especially good for use where environmental conditions can be challenging — like high humidity or salt air locations.
DaVinci Roofscapes now makes it easy for you to purchase HDG nails when placing your order for our synthetic shake and simulated slate roofing products. We’ve started stocking HDG nails and can sell them to you with your order. We’ve even got HDG nails available in coils for gun nailing!
