Tip of the Week: Selecting a Fastener When Installing Vinyl Siding

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.
