Deck Screws are an essential part of your decking system, as they ensure that each of your planks are fitted as securely into place as possible. As decking is typically placed in areas that are prone to moisture, for example outdoors or around swimming pools, it is important to purchase deck screws that are highly resistant against corrosion. However, it should be noted that you should only require a stainless steel deck screw if the decking will be placed near water for example a swimming pool, or if your property is on a coastline.
Traditionally, Decking Screws are larger in size than those used from drywalls. They are designed to prevent splits from occuring in your decking, however they are also suitable for use in other exterior timber applications for example in fencing.
