I'm installing 19/32" thick T1-11 panels as interior walls against wood studs. I'm unsure whether it would be easier/better to use ring shank nails in a nail gun, or screws. Some of my concerns:
- The panels are a bit wavy, so I figured screws would make it easier to ensure the panels are snug against the studs
- Would like to avoid buying an air compressor and framing nail gun if I can help it. Renting those would end up running about the same cost since I have to spread out installation over many days due to time constraints.
- A nail gun would surely be faster, but since the panels are wavy I'd have to ensure the panel is pressed against the stud before nailing
What sort of screw should I use? Is there risk that a screw might tear up the shiplap edge?
