Using the indicator markings on the panel, screws are placed 12” o.c. along the InSoFast studs per code report. InSoFast panels are generally screwed in place, however, you may opt to use nail guns to install the panels and siding provided the temperature is above 60° F for the stud to accept nails. It is up to the contractor and/or building official to determine the suitability for the nails in regard to use, length, and spacing.
