PFT installation expert Jared explains what type of fastener to use on you siding and insulation job.
For sheathing and fanfold products, use a button cap nail to tack it to the wall prior to your siding installation.
When installing vinyl siding, use a galvanized nail, stainless steel nail, or aluminum nail; something that won’t rust. Roofing nails with a 3/8″ diameter head work well with vinyl siding.
Make sure you use a long enough nail to go through the siding and the insulation, and is long enough to penetrate into the sheathing or framing to the proper depth.
