Screw Nailing

In the past, sheets of metal for siding, cladding and roofing were attached with simple nails. A building constructed sometime ago may have loose beams and boards due to loose nails. These worn-out nails tell on this inferior method of attachment, and the metal sheets work loose.

Our team can replace any old nails with the more durable screw-nail, which grips the beam much more tightly, and prevents the cladding’s working loose. We always use screw-nails for attaching any new metal cladding, beams and boards on a barn.
