No Need for Nails Roof

No Need for Nails Roof
I have noticed many countries have decided to stop using nails when the use corrugated steel for roofing. Below is a photo of a relatively flat roof in Panajachel, Guatemala located on the lake called Lago, Atitlan that does not use nails.

If you have ever tried to pound nails through the crown of a corrugated steel roof, you may appreciate the simplicity of this method. They took cement blocks and placed them on the roof to hold it down.

What do you think, are they innovative or lazy?
