      I am interested in the best method for installing
      5/4 x 12″ rough sawn cypress siding. We’ve used double
      hot dipped galvanized nails but with no finish on the wood
      experienced some checking and warping after 8-10 years. I am
      re-doing and adding on to the house and have used coated
      (Prime-guard plus) deck screws. This seems to work well.
      We installed screws every two feet or so along both sides
      into studding,firebreaks and sheathing. Is this appropriate?
      Can I use batten strips that are thinner and use one screw
      in the center every two feet along the batten length? I plan
      to use a semi-transparent stain this time. Any info to confirm
      or correct this method would be appreciated. Any other ideas?
