    A:  There is no published shear rating for these screws as they are not structural screws.

      Q:What type of metal are these made from? I'm trying to decide if I can use these or if I need to buy stainless steel screws to guarantee they won't corrode long term / be unhealthy for a tree I drive them into.

      Answer This Question

      A:  These are steel screws with a polymer coating meant for long term outdoor use. Recommendations cannot be made for use on a tree as that is outside of published uses.

          Q:What screw to use for load-bearing applications like holding the rafters or joist hangers ? Thanks
          by|Jul 7, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  The deck screws illustrated are designed to join wood to wood. If you are using Simpson Strong-tie joist hangers, they also supply screws designed for that purpose. https://www.homedepot.com/s/simpson%2520strong%2520tie%2520screw?NCNI-5

          by|Jul 8, 2022

            A:  I used 2 inch screws to hold the joist hangers for a 16 x 16 deck. Screwed them into the base of the deck that was made from 2 x 10 x 16 . Held up for 3 years without sagging. Planning on doing the same for new home deck 12×12.

              These torque head Decking screws make secure sturdy construction and nearly no failure as to continually stripping driver bits , and it makes it easier to remove. Highly recommended.

              Quality has gone way down!
              I recently bought a 5 pound box of 2 1/2 inch screws and 20 of them either didn't have the heads drilled out, some had partially drilled out heads that wouldn't accept a bit, and some of them were deformed wabbled a lot when screwing them in. I was using them to build raised beds, but I'm about to start a deck project and am no longer going to use these screws for that. Buyer beware. There is also no customer service for this product and I didn't keep every single screw so doubt HD cares!

                Screws are breaking after less than two months
                Over the course of the two months, I've purchased four separate boxes of Deckmate star drive coated screws to use in securing deckboards while remodeling my back deck: (2) 1 lb boxes of 2 1/2" (item #: 1003 274 848) (1) 5 lb box of 2 1/2" (1003 274 835) (1) 1 lb box of 3 1/2" (1003 274 833) I've since stained my deck and thought I was finished with the project when I began to notice some of the screws slightly "popping" loose. While attempting to re-secure them with a drill, I determined that several of the screws had essentially begun to break. So far I've discovered at least ten of them (photo of several below, along with an "unbroken" one for reference) that have broken, all in a similar spot on the screw. I really liked these screws when installing and their promise of "lifetime warranty" but am now greatly concerned over what the future holds regarding their durability.

                  These decimate screws are my favorite. Reasonable price, the star drive bit never slips or strips out and they hold tight. Great for exterior applications but work well for all kinds of applications.
