Have a wood siding job? Ever had nails with shank diameters too large causing your material to split? This is a common problem. Siding Nails are the answer. With slimmer shanks and smaller less noticeable heads, Siding Nails are the perfect fastener for blind nailing or face nailing siding projects or any other application where splitting material could be a problem. The smaller head diameters work well with SIDING and allows the nail to be countersunk or driven flush without crushing surrounding wood.
Available lengths range from 1-1/4” up to 4”. Typically lengths up to 2-1/2” are used for Siding field material applications while longer lengths are used for Siding Trim, Fascia, and Soffit applications.
We have a wide selection available in both Hot Dip Smooth Shank and Stainless Steel Ring Shank. Smooth shank is just that… smooth or plain, just your typical nail shank, no deformation or additional pull out resistance beyond the natural holding power nails provide. On the other hand, Ring shank nails (a.k.a. annular thread) dramatically increase holding power. Ring shank has threaded rings that are cut into the shank of the nail helping it grip the wood fibers as it is being driven. Ring shank is much less likely to back-out over time.
Siding nails have a special smaller 5/32" head diameter up to 2-1/2” length while longer lengths exponentially increase in head size while still maintaining smaller diameters ranging from 7/32” to 1/4". The head has just enough surface area to securely hold down the material while also maintaining the ability to be driven flush of even counter sunk if needed. Unlike roofing nails the head is not overly noticeable when used in face nailing applications. Checker pattern on heads blends with faux wood grain, reduces glare from sunlight and accepts surface finishes.
Our Siding Nails are available in three grades of corrosion resistance including Hot Dip Galvanized, 304 Grade Stainless Steel, and 316 Grade Stainless Steel:
Hot Dip Galvanized are literally dipped into Molten Zinc until a thick uniform coating is achieved across the entire surface of the nail. Hot Dip Galvanized is the highest level of zinc galvanization available. Meets the minimum requirement for ACQ Treated Lumber but is Not Recommended. For ACQ Treated lumber we recommend Stainless Steel.
304 Grade Stainless Steel is best suited for typical outdoor applications to avoid nail corrosion and discoloration. ACQ-treated lumber, redwood, cedar, and acidic or oil-based exotic woods. Painted nails available.
316 Grade Stainless Steel is best suited for tropical, seaside, salt water contact applications, or any project near large bodies of water. Recommended for all outdoor applications with ACQ-treated lumber, redwood, cedar, and acidic or oil-based exotic woods where Marine Grade fasteners are needed to avoid unsightly stains, streaks, corrosion and discoloration. Painted nails available.
