Brad Nailing Magnesiacore to wood framing

Posted in uPgrade your Drywall ! at 1:00 am by Magnesiacore Guy

We have found that the faster and secure method of boarding with magnesiacore to wood framing is by using a finishing nail gun (with finishing nails or brads). The nail holes are virtually not visible and can be filled with painters putty during priming and painting. Finishing nails do not pull out or pull through magnesiacore once gun nailed in. We have also carefully but fairly easily pried off magnesiacore panels with a flat crowbar after it was nail gunned on to wood framing, and are able to reuse it after snipping off parts of the nail that remain firmly in the board without structural damage to the board.
