Nail Gun Nails


If you’re planning on renovating a house or building a structure, then you’ll need yourself a whole lot of nails, and not just any nails, but nail gun nails or framing nails.


Nail gun nails, as the name suggests, are the type of nails that you use in nail guns when you’re framing your house.


These nails are very important, as they help keep your structure together and keep it standing strong, rather than collapsing! 


Nail gun nails, like other nails, can be nailed in using a simple hammer. But when you have to use framing nails all over the house or on a big structure, why not buy yourself a nail gun and make the job a lot easier?


There are different kinds of nail guns that you can load your nail gun nails in.  

  • There are battery operated nail guns which are made for outdoor framing.
  • There are also gas nail guns which are also portable. It uses a spark to set the gas on fire and create the energy to nail the nail gun nail into place.
  • Another type of nail gun is the electric nail gun. These are more for experience framers since they use a lot of power and hard to handle.
