Nails or screws for garden gate?

Post by Adam78 »

What kind of fixing would you recommend for a ledge and brace tongue and groove garden gate. Would you use screws or ring shank nails?

I've come across some gates where the tongue and groove boards are fixed with screws from the rear. Are there any pros or cons fixing boards using screws from the rear of the gate as opposed to using nails from the front?

any advice appreciated.
