I was about to order some longer nails, but was wondering why Joe recommends 2.5" nails to fasten ridge cleats down.
That's a big nail that's definitely going to penetrate into the attic...just seems weird.

They will probably work, but you will have a hard time of it.

Are 1.5" nails long enough for 3/16"-3/8" slate on a 1" deck, or should I have some longer nails on hand to deal with the heavier 3/8"?

Quality fasteners are ridiculously expensive up here, I may have to make a run for the border.
