Guys you're steering this fella in the wrong direction.

You can't use deck screws for framing, they aren't for structural use.

Any good inspector will make you remove them. You must use structural fasteners.

Re: Sistering studs - which nails?


Where either the drywall or siding is still attached to the damaged stud I would not use nails at all.


I would use 3" square drive construction screws to minimize any collateral damage.

You've got to cut out that rotted wood. It's a little tough from here to tell you exactly how to do it. Don't know if there's a floor above you, if that's a gable end etc?. You can cut out the bad part, splice in a new piece and sister full studs to repair. You can use a construction adhesive to glue the sheathing to the new studs.

Also possible to use structural screws like the ones from Simpson Strong-Tie or to thru bolt the sister to the original stud. Nails are cheaper but if access is a problem then the more expensive fasteners will cost under $20.

Because the nails will push the damaged stud and potentially enlarge the holes used by existing fasteners securing the siding to the damaged studs?

So something like this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Grip-Rit...GCS1/204959258

except in square drive - I guess square drive is easier to drive without camming out?

No need to pre-drill with construction screws?

Yes or otherwise damage the siding.


Exactly like that but I buy them from a bulk box at a real harware store for 5.99 per pound.


Square drive is 10 time less strippable than Phillips.



Sometimes in old hardened wood I predrill the old wood. Not need for it in new wood.
