    Q:Could these be used for Hardie fiber cement siding

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes they could be, but these nails are designed for shear strength and are more expensive than regular common galvanized nails, which are suitable for Hardi Siding. Just ensure you thoroughly read the installation guidelines for nailing patterns and depth.
