I used these screws and they corroded within six years and came out of my treated lumber deck boards. When I pulled them out they were rusted and the threads were gone.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TedtheInstaller Screws rot out right under the head.
Spent over $120 for all the deck mate screws I used on my deck project and after only 5 years they started to rot right under the head where there are no threads. They thin out in this area from rust and eventually the head pops out. Stay away from these screws and use stainless steel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bones58GDI Screw Removal after 16 years is an issue
I am re-decking and removal of the old cedar deck is always fun, I have several versions of deck screws. The old DeckMate ASR - 3" #9 screws are a pain to remove.
About 10% are snapping and they are all very corroded.
At the same time I am removing some Grip Rite Deck screws also 3" #9 and they are still intact. So they are preferred over the DeckMate.
Prior to the removal I bought 15.lbs of DeckMate deck screws. I will be returning them.
I concur with the corrosion comments posted on here regarding DeckMate and corrosion,
I am deciding between the FastenMaster and the GripRite products. Any collaborative commentary appreciated. I mean 16 years isn't horrible but they are not a LifeTime product.

I was happy with these fasteners - they didn't strip or slip, so I got the job done fast.

I used 15 pounds of these screws for my deck. Noticed rust after 7 years then more breakdown every year. Contacted the company sent pics again and again - nothing . Use stainless steel screws and be done.These are overpriced and they don't stand behind the product promise.

There is not a good phone # on the deckmate screws when you call the # it goes in to a recording but that is all it does 877-527-0313 so I called Homedepot they gave me another # 888-332-6282 they told me that they don't sell to home depot any more for the past year . How can I talk to some one the screws are dull so I need a hammer to start them my new drill just keeps on spinning the screw it is taking so much extra work for these to work the star heads have so much coating in them its even hard to use them. I want some one to talk to who is making these for Home depot its a very bad product who is doing quality assurance on this item
