What contractors use to fasten decking determines its durability and structural integrity in the face of adverse weather.

The best decks are built to resist cracking and corrosion. 

Types of corrosion-resistant fasteners

We stock a variety of wholesale fasteners that have been treated to resist corrosion.

Our inventory includes:

  • Galvanized screws
  • Stainless steel fasteners, including deck screws
  • Threaded rod
  • Nuts
  • Bolts, including timber, lag, carriage and hex head

Top 3 types of corrosion resistant deck screws

Epoxy coated deck screws with square head recesses

#3 - Epoxy coated heat-treated steel

Epoxy coated steel screws have an epoxy based polymer resin overcoat. The epoxy coating provides excellent corrosion resistance and is designed to adhere to the screw, even after it’s inserted into wood and synthetic decking products.

Used for…

  • Treated lumber
  • Wood and composite decking when the decking manufacturer recommends coated heat treated screws

Grade 304 stainless steel deck screw

#2 - Grade 304 and 305 stainless steel

Grade 304 and 305 stainless steel is the most common grade of stainless steel used in exterior fasteners.  Stainless steel is softer than carbon steel and may require pre-drilling, but it is useful in applications where epoxy coated steel does not provide sufficient corrosion resistance.

Some contractors prefer to use stainless steel screws that feature extra water-proofing through epoxy or ceramic coating.

The extra coating provides additional structural support since it prevents the screws from sliding out of place.

Used for…

  • Wood decking
  • Composite decking

Star-drive recessed deck screws

Grade 316 stainless steel is sometimes referred to as marine grade stainless steel, and it provides the highest level of corrosion resistance.

Used for…

  • Environments exposed to salt air
  • Structures near large bodies of saltwater
  • Swimming pools
  • When using naturally rot resistant lumber such as cedar, redwood and many tropical hardwoods
  • Wood decking
  • Composite decking

Deck screws that resist stripping

We carry deck screws and other fasteners outfitted to resist stripping because they are engineered with...

  1. "Star" or "square" drive head recesses 
  2. Type 17 endpoints that eliminate the need for pre-drilling and provide lower torque during installation — which translates into less strain on the user and the installation tool
