nail pops on exterior siding


Siding on my house is like the 12 inch lap masonite siding, I have noticed on the
south and west side of my house that some of the nails have started to pop
out just slightly, some nails it just cracked the paint, others the nails have just started to pull away from the paint. I am getting ready to paint my house and I want to make sure that I make the correct repairs. Looking
for ideas on what works.

If the nails are popping then they probably didn't use ring shank nails and/or didn't hit the studs. It should be easy enough to remove those nails (without damaging the siding) and re-nail with ring shank siding nails into studs.

pulled one nail out, I had to use a small pry bar with a piece of wood to pull the nail out, about 3/4 of the nail has spirals on it. Siding was put on my house about 15 years ago

would you recommend putting a larger nail back in the same hole or nailing
above old nail hole with a new nail and filling old nail hole with some kind of
caulk, prime caulked hole then paint ?
