I just built a garage with an addition on it. I am going to do the siding job myself. I wanted to know if anyone has installed vinyl siding with a nail gun. I was doing some research and found that a roofing nailer can have an adaptor added that will allow it to be used for this. If anyone has some experience with this please let me know and let me know what might be the best gun to use. I was searching ebay to get a used one.
I've never tried it, but if you do, make sure that you don't drive the nails in tight. Vinyl siding needs to hang in the nails so it can expand and contract without binding. That's why the nail holes are slotted.
save your money! Nail the siding by hand. by the time you purchase the nail gun set it up and learn to get use to it you could of completed the job by hand. it does not make sense to by the gun if your just doing one garage.
