PREPAINTING NAIL HEADS

The Family Handyman - - HANDY HINTS - NATE SCHLUTER

When you’re in­stalling pre­painted wood or en­gi­neered-wood sid­ing, paint the tops of gal­va­nized nail coils the color of the house be­fore load­ing them into the gun. It’s much faster than go­ing back and paint­ing them one at a time later. Use a foam brush and ap­ply the paint spar­ingly so it doesn’t drip over the edges of the nail heads. Let the paint dry com­pletely be­fore load­ing the coils into the nail gun.
