What kind of nails are these?


I was in my garage and noticed there was a gap between the piece you see in the pics and the garage and I realized it was missing some nails but I don't know which kind I need to buy to match these.

Nails fired out of a pneumatic framing nailer with a head that size 2 1/2 to 3".

That looks like a hand nail to me, maybe an 8d or 12d. Why in the world did someone use a framing nail for that?

I really don't know, that's why I'm here hehe, I just bought this house and I'm trying to fix minor things that I can with help from you guys. What am I supposed to be using to attach that piece?

Just standard flat head painted exterior trim nails. As for missing nails, if you are talking about that piece, it does not appear, since every 3' is about right for that trim around the garage door. You want to be able to replace it, in case the rubber sweep gets torn up, and placing more nails is counter productive if you ever have to pull it.

Those are not pneumatic nails! As AgentW and greg said, they are run of the mill trim nails. However, I would be willing to bet that they are no longer than 1-1/4". That is what we always used for alumunimum trim and these door seals. I did not even know they made them bigger than this. Any box store will have them. If you want to add a few more, drill a small pilot hole first in the piece first (not into the wood framing)
