What if You Didn’t Need a Wood Nailer?

Hickman Edge Systems makes using a wood nailer obsolete. The roof perimeter and corners serve as the first line of defense against severe winds, rain, hail, storms, tornados, hurricanes, and much more. If the edge fails, the entire roof system is in jeopardy. Replacing old wood nailers at the building perimeter with Eliminailer-T or EdgeBox RI significantly reduces the risk of failure and helps protect the entire roof system from costly damages and blow-off.
