I’m an owner/remodeler, contemplating purchase of nail gun for framing, fiber cement siding, and composite trim. Have not used nail guns before. I’m considering the Bostitch N88RH framing nailer, which uses plastic collated, stick framing nails. My question is, is this nailer appropriate for siding as well as framing, and if so, what are the optimal nails? Amazon offers 2 3/8 inch glav nails for the nailer, and also ring-shank nails (but these don’t appear to be galvanized, which would seem to make them a poor choice for siding).
Does anyone offer stainless steel nails for nail guns (for siding)?
Thanks, as always, for sharing your expertise.
