Choosing the Right Stainless Steel Decking Screws for Your DIY Deck Project

You have the plans, the permits and the timber boards that you need to start your DIY deck project. You are almost ready to start digging holes for footings and building the backyard deck you've always wanted. Before you can get started, though, you need to place a bulk order for stainless steel decking screws. The question is, what type of screws do you need for the project?

Choosing the Right Stainless Steel Decking Screws for Your Project

As you will notice once you start shopping for decking screws from our stainless steel collection at Trade Warehouse, our screws come in a variety of different sizes, grades and types. Here's what you need to know to pick the right screws for your project:

  • Grade: Australian decking screws come in two grades: 304 and 316. While 304-grade steel will work just fine for most situations, 316 is more resilient and designed to stand up to salt water, chlorine and constant moisture. In other words, if you live in a coastal area or if you are building a deck around a pool, you will want to spring for 316-grade decking screws.
  • Size: You will see a few different numbers when you go to buy a set of stainless decking screws. For instance, you might be looking at ordering 304-grade screws marked as 10G x 50mm. The 10G refers to gauge or thickness. 10G is the standard here, but other gauges are available as well. 50mm refers to the length of the stainless steel decking screw. Depending on the thickness of the wood you are working with, you might want shorter or longer screws.
  • Design: Our screws at Trade Warehouse come in a variety of different design. Most are square drive so that you never have to worry about the screws stripping. Our decking countersunk heads, which are good for getting the screw to sit just below the surface of the timber (This feature is essential for the parts of the deck people will be walking on.) We also sell self-drilling screws with wing tips which are ideal for fastening wood to metal.

These points of information should help to simplify your shopping process.
