Basically size and type of nails. 
Roofing nails tend to be shorter with a smooth shank and siding nails are generally longer with a ring shank.

The head of the roofing nail is also much larger.

Hi Jerry!

Welcome to the FOG.  I see in your footnote that you are a tool reviewer.  What kind of tools do you review?

Oh by the way, you can change your screen name in your profile to correct the spelling if necessary.  It doesn't match the text in your footnote and I don't know which is correct.
