About products and suppliers:

Framing nails are the go-to fastener for heavy-duty construction jobs. Framing nails come in various sizes, so they drive easily and penetrate flush with the wood, preventing splitting. Framing nails are used for wall hanging or for securing the framing members of a structure such as floors and roofs. The two most common nails for framing are either roundhead or clipped.

Round Head Nails

These galvanized framing nails have a round head and a flat top, making them easy to drive into wood. Round head nails have a flush point that helps them fit snugly under the surface of the wood, which makes them less likely to pull out.

Clipped Head Nails

Clipped head nails are specially designed for use with pneumatic nail guns and staplers. They can handle more pressure without splitting or breaking off inside the frame itself.

What nails to use for framing?

16d nails are the most appropriate nails to use for framing. They have a shank length of 3 ½ inches with a structural design, meaning that 16d framing nails can easily hold two pieces of wood together without splitting.

Is a 3-inch nail good for framing?

10d nails are good for framing. They have a shank length of 3 inches, which makes them best suited for 2×4 framing.

What is the difference between a brad nail and a framing nail?

Framing nails are used for handling small- to large-scale framing projects. They are usually collated and come in various sizes, including 16d, 10d, 8d, and 6d. A brad nail is a small, thin nail that is used in steel metal construction. It's typically used to hold together smaller items, like trim or molding.

Which is better, a 21-degree or 30-degree framing nailer?

Coil nails can be used with either a 21-degree or 30-degree framing nailer. The 21-degree framing nailer has a low angle that makes it easy to drive nails in tight spaces.
