Types of Outdoor Nails and Screws
Deck, fence and siding fasteners help secure wood and other materials that retain moisture. This moisture can seep into your fasteners, resulting in rust and corrosion on fasteners that are left unprotected. This guide provides an explanation of the types of screws best suited for your outdoor projects, including galvanized nails, galvanized screws and more.
Tip: Look for polymer-coated, hot-dipped fasteners when working outdoors with lumber and other materials for decks, fences and siding.
