The Importance Of Decking Screws

Decking is well known to be one of the most cost-effective home improvement projects you can undertake. This is because the cost of installing it is outweighed by the value it puts on your property. So decking is a great project to take on if you are looking to sell your property, but also if you are looking to improve your quality of life and make more practical use of the garden.

However, the critical factor with decking is that you need it to be hard-wearing and long-lasting in order to be value for money. Being outside, decking is exposed to the worst of the weather and this can soon affect its appearance, but also its integral structure. In order to solve both of these issues you need to use the right fixings and fasteners for the job, and with decking this can be the Green Pozi Countersunk decking screw.

Why is this screw good for decking?decking screw

This screw is the perfect fixing for decking because it is easy to handle and apply and is strong and reliable. But it is a specialist fixing for decking because:

  • The reduced diameter countersunk head is designed to fit between standard decking grooves. This aids stability and appearance, but also prevents a health and safety trip hazard.
  • Ribs under the head of the screw improve countersinking to provide a strong fixing and a neat, flush finish.
  • A helix on the screw shank removes debris.
  • A 25° sharp point penetrates into all wood types much easier.
  • A deep single thread provides a secure fixing with high pull-out resistance.
  • All screws come with a Green corrosion resistant plating.

All screws supplied by Kayfast are 4.5mm thread diameter and are designed specifically for the construction of decking platforms. You can see from the detail of the design and manufacturing spec that every tiny detail has been thought of to aid the installation of decking, but also to maximise its lifespan in your outdoor space.

It is very important to use specialist fittings for jobs such as this, particularly where protruding screws can look poor, get damaged and cause accidents. A good decking install can last up to 20 years if it is properly maintained in the meantime, but an essential element of that is using the right screws. It may not appear this way, but outdoor decking sees a lot of traffic and is exposed to extreme weathers, so it is common for wood to split, crack or warp, or for boards to come loose over time, and therefore become damaged. Using the right screws and properly maintaining your decking should, therefore, provide many years of enjoyment for you and your family.
