Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Siding & Roofing Nailer Reviews

Our siding and coil roofing nailer reviews are for the framing and roofing professional who uses it for hours on end. When you work a full day, you can’t use sub-par tools that slow down your progress. You make more money when your tools help you get done more quickly and efficiently. We review both pneumatic roofing nailers as well as cordless gas models like the Paslode CF325Li cordless framing nailer. Roofing and Siding Nailers on the Jobsite When we do our siding and roofing nailer reviews, we expect the right blend of features and performance. The best tools will hold up to our on-the-job product testing. We test for dry fire lockout, speed of loading coil nails, and ergonomics. When you use a tool on a roof all day long it needs to feel good in the hand while performing consistently and reliably. It also must be able to accurately and repeatedly fire roofing and siding nails into framing material, and roof decking. Out tool reviews involve Pro in the field, utilizing tools on the jobsite or in line with jobsite applications. We attempt to convey how each roofing nailer will perform in the field.

Best Nail Gun for Anyone in 2021

When you ask who makes the best tools, the answers vary. It’s a long-held belief around here that the manufacturer with the best cordless drill doesn’t necessarily make the best miter saw. The same can be said for each type of nailer. In fact, the best nail gun in the various categories and styles we […]

Everwin 2-1/2-Inch Coil Siding Nailer

Everwin Coil Siding Nailer SCN65

Don’t you love the smell of new tool features in the morning? We’ve come to expect coil nailers to remain generally the same with only marginal tinkering, but Everwin set out to prove us wrong. Since we like better tools, hopefully, Everwin hit the nail on the head with the Everwin Coil Siding Nailer. Although the Taiwanese company […]

Hitachi 2-1/2-Inch Coil Siding Nailer Review

Senco SCN65XP 15-Degree Coil Nailer

Ridgid R175RNF Coil Roofing Nailer

Ridgid R175RNF Coil Roofing Nailer

The last time we talked about roofing nailers, I told you that although there’s more variation among them than framing nailers, there’s still not a ton of differentiation. But it’s the weight that really tips the balance – pun intended – in favor of the tools I prefer. Most new roofing tools really just tinker around […]

DeWalt DW45RN Coil Roofing Nailer

Like its cousin the framing nailer, the roofing nailer is a staple of construction work. Unlike the collated nail stick of a framing nailer, most roofing nailers like the DeWalt DW45RN coil roofing nailer use a coil of wire-collated nails. Whereas the framer is used almost exclusively for framing, these roofing tools are a little […]
