Customer Questions & Answers

What length screw should I use?

I am installing 1" composite deck boards as runners on stringers made from 2x10 pressure treated lumber. I am also installing 1/2" composite fascia on the risers. What size screw should I use for each application? Thank you!
Asked by: Chris
Hi Chris, great question! For best results please review the install guidelines from the board manufacturer as well as your local building code for compliance. Typically 2-1/2" screws are used for top boards on 5/4" top boards or thinner, and 1-5/8" would be the shortest composite screw available.

#9 x 3 in. Star Bugle-Head Composite Deck Screws (5 lb.-Pack) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid It seems silly to write a review for screws but these are actually a bad product. The problem is the design of the screw tip itself - there are no threads at the tip of the screw to 1/8 inch up for the screw to grab into the material. This means that you either have to force the screw in 1/8 inch to get it to grab or just sit there drilling endlessly in hopes it grabs, somehow. The only other option is to drill a pilot hole, which is completely counter-intuitive as these screws are self-tapping. Also, the very sharp point combined with the way the self-tapping is done (basically there is a groove cut into the screw) means that even the slightest eccentricy in your will will be greatly magnified, making it even harder to use these. I was fortunate to have a suitable star-drive bit, but a bit is not included with these, so make sure you have one before you get started - square drive or any other bit will not work. These seem like minor problems, but this type is the majority of deck screws sold in my local store. They are so frustrating to use that any project needing more than one or two screws will be slowed down significantly by using these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch deck screw I actually use this screw for all kinds of wood projects not just for a deck, when I need a long screw. I like these screws because they have threads that go all the way up to the head of the screw, whereas most screws seem to stop an inch or so from the top. I think that is where the grip-rite title comes from. I get a nice tight grip with these screws and often need the 3 inch length as I'm going through nearly 2 inches to get to the next wood piece, which then gets about 1 inch and a little more of the screw in it. Yes you need your own star driver to use these, no big deal, it's easy to pick up and insert in your drill driver. They may have went with the star driver over the common Phillips to get more torque, it does take a lot of torque to get these in tight, so I usually always pre-drill the hole.
