  1. This is a great piece of content. I just spoke to a gentleman buying a house, the owner installed the roof himself with staples. They buyer that called me to find local roofers to inspect the job now has to replace the roof immediately after closing. The roof is less than a year old and has NO WARRANTY because they used staples. Thanks for addressing this.

    1. Yes, this is a problem that we have been hearing more frequently. Thank you for the comment.

  2. I have a 2006 home that is failing due to staples, whats the chance of getting the builder to replace it?

    1. This answer is state specific. We are located in Washington State, where it is legal to use staples, so the chances of getting the builder to replace the roof would be zero to none if you live here. But if you are in a different state, such as Colorado, where using staples on composition roofing shingles is illegal, then you would have an extremely good chance.

  3. Very rare I come across I topic so relevant and yet so rarely addressed. Home owners must be educated about the advantages that nails have over staples, despite being a pricey option, as it could save them a lot of money in the longer run.
