Can't say I've ever nailed a shingle to particle board. Butt, on cdx plywood I use a bostich narrow crown stapler. For outdoor projects, make sure to use stainless staples. SH

Use SS for sure. Also, be certain to get the ones that are made to face east - it's really hard to nail/staple from the inside - out!
