Nail Type

I am resheathing my garden shed with T1-11 plywood . I would like to use a pneumatic nail 

gun but I am not sure what kind to use. Do I use a framing nailer or a finish nailers?.

Since I will be buying a compressor and gun I want to make sure I buy the right type.

Hi DaveK,

 

Recommended nails for the T1-11 siding are the 8 penny galvanized or stainless steel
(cedar) ring shank nails. Pneumatic version of these nails is normally shot out of a  siding coil nailers.

Penetration in to the stud for the T1-11 should be 1-3/4”, and if you’re going directly over the studs you are looking at the 2-3/8” nails.siding nails.jpgGeorge
