I have a 60+ year old house with wood siding. I have to paint it or
replace the siding. If I stay with the wood siding, I was thinking about
puting in screws where the nails have pushed out from the siding. The
nails don't have much bite anymore. So, I was wondering what people
thought of the idea of using screws. I live in Arkansas, so moisture is
a big problem.

If the number of loose nails is relatively small (like a box full) then use
screws. Stainless steel would be best for permanence, especially in moisture
prone areas. The difference in cost between SS and plated screws is not all
that great. HTH
