I would ask the owner why he wants casing nails, and tell him the right way to go. Casing nails have a head that is designed to result in a smooth splinter free hole in interior casing work. Casing nails do not have a lot of gripping power. That makes them unsuitable for decking. Casing nails are used for interior casing work like moldings, baseboards and trim. Their length is usually limited to 2-1/2” and are 15 or 16 gauge. The best fasteners for a deck are screws. Nails will eventually pull up or pull through. That owner needs education as to woodworking construction, something he is ignorant about.
