I cannot get the serrated head start drive cement screws into the backer board. I have even tried...

Asked by Iisahandy September 2, 2018

Lisa, I assume you are using the correct driver which came in the box of screws. Some of the screws use a Phillips head and some use a star shapes head. The bit that came with the screws is the one you need to use. I have used these screws and the cement board about a gazillion times and never had the problem you discribe. If you are using the correct driver but and you can't get the screw started, try drilling a hole smaller than the screw diameter. Set your drive on low speed and firmly press down on the screw head pushing straight down. The cement board Hardie Board, is actually rather soft and drills rather easily. Once you get the hang of drilling a pilot hole for the first couple of screws you will get the hang of it and not need to drill a hole first. Good luck

How many square feet of 1/4" backboard would this box cover?

28 screws are NOT enough. I believe there are 56 dimples on each full board. Don't scrimp. At 5 cents a screw, you are only saving $1.40 a sheet.

Depends on how many you use per sheet I like to use one every 6 inches vertically and horizontally 77 screws per sheet so almost 10 sheets

The screws are a full 1.25". The standard half inch Backerboard is actually just 0.42" so you're going to be 0.12" too long which is more like 1/8".

Can I use these screws to fasten cement board to .050” thick aluminum square tubing?

Asked by Jeff April 20, 2020

Answers

I'm not sure if these would work perfectly because I have utilized them this way, however if you pre-drill I think they should work. If that don't work for you get a flat head steal screw and drill I pilot hole in the backer board and then attach to aluminum.

Has anyone used these to fasten cbu to steel studs (20 gauge or thicker)? Did they self-tap as stated?

These would be strong enough but I am not sure if the length would be sufficient for a toilet flange. It depends on your subfloor as well.

Excellent Screw for any backer board
Every screw is perfect. Of course when I hit a nail head underneath then the screw cannot penetrate, but that was rare. This screw made the entire backer board project ALMOST fun! The tip easily penetrates, and the screw head has a digging action which makes the flush setting that-more-easier.

Had no issues with these screws. Little pricey, but worked fine. Gotta be careful not to over torque or they will go to deep and break your cement board. I would use them again for any future projects.

I have utilized many types of backer board screws these work perfectly especially with the star drive head. So far I had no issues with the heads snapping off or the driver stripping the head or stripping period.
