We are putting northern white cedar half log siding on our home. I've stripped the old siding and put Tyvek over the sheathing. My questions are as follows:
1) Do we need to caulk in between each tongue and groove or between logs after install?
2) Should I use a good exterior deck screw to attach the siding or galvanized nails?
3) Is the finishing process: Borate, caulk, stain, then topcoat in that order?
Thank you in advance,
Galv. nails will work, but if you want to spend the money, stainless steel nails are better. You should caulk after installation, borate and then stain.
