This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2019. As the name implies, concrete nailers are used to drive fasteners into cement-based substrates. While it is possible to accomplish this same thing with a hammer or powder-actuated tool, these pneumatic- and gas-powered models are more efficient and allow you to get the job done significantly quicker. Some are even suitable for driving pins into thick steel, and most accept a variety of nail sizes. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best nail gun for concrete on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 22, 2019:

We realize people have different needs when it comes to buying a concrete nailer. Contractors will require a much more powerful and durable model than a consumer doing a one-off job on their home for whom price will be a major factor in their buying decision. Because of this, we strived to include a variety of tools that are well-suited to each of these needs. We also made sure to include both gas- and air-powered options.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
