Exposed Nails on Steel Roof

Hey Guys,
Hope one of you can help with this. From what I have learned on steel roofs there should never be exposed nails.
Though today I came across a steel roofing system that has exposed nails and claims there nails will never allow water in. It’s by a company called Hy-Grade have any of you ever seen this system before?


Thanks Jeffrey! I have seen the website but when I checked there system there was some loose nails, they went up in 1 pattern, and some even had screws sound a little odd?

Like most everything… lazy and cheap contractors are the root cause of most issues we discover!
Report what you observed. Include a link to the company website for their information.


Like most everything…Lazy, inexperienced home inspectors calling out issues that don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground, blaming defects on contractors when the work was most likely done by dumb ass homeowners that seen it on TV.

Hey Guys update found out from the manufacturer and it was improperly installed by the contractor as I thought.


Do have any photos of the improper installation at the metal roof you inspected?
