Are Roofing Nails Overrated?

What plays a bigger role in preventing shingle blow-offs — the nails or the adhesive? GAF decided to find out by blasting 153 MPH hurricane-force winds at a roof held together with no nails — just GAF DuraGrip™ Adhesive. We’d never recommend installing a roof without nails, but after watching this video demonstration, the next time someone talks about their pretty nailing strips, you might want to ask, “Where’s your DuraGrip™?”
