Question: How should asphalt shingles be fastened to the roof deck?
Top Answer (94% of 35 votes): Nails.

Answer: Nails
Explanation: Nails have more holding power than staples. More specifically, roof nails should be galvanized ring-shanked and penetrate through the roof decking at least 3/16" unless over an open-beam ceiling. 3/4" nails are then acceptable.
