Cedar Siding Nailing

They should be into studs and they need to miss the top of the underlying clapboard, so it isn't restrained and can freely expand and contract; otherwise, they tend to split horizontally.

There was no requirement to counter sink them. To the surface of flush with the surface would have been fine. Puttying them and touching them up will work fine if they can get a perfect match with the touch up paint (not likely).

For more information about these, go here to download a copy of their free siding installation manual. Or take a free online installer's course here, or just browse the Western Red Cedar website here.
