Questions & Answers

How long are these screws? I need to go through 1and 1/8 in plus 3/4 in before I hit wood.

How long are these screws? I need to go through 1and 1/8 in plus 3/4 in before I hit wood.
Asked by: Flyboy
They are 2 inches long. The provided bit will drive them about 3/8 inch below the surface of the AZEK trim surface. This makes them effectively 2 and 3/8 long. Your stack up is 1 and 7/8 inches leaving about a half an inch into the wood. I would use them but put them closer together than the suggested spacing. They do look nice once you use the plugs, the holes just seem to disappear.

can you buy extra plugs

Asked by: hammerman188
You can make your own with scrap pvc. Need a table saw, plug cutter and drill press. rip piece to plug length. Use smooth side as plug top. Use piece of wood for base, place pvc on top and drill away. Go slower or it pvc will melt.

Are these smooth or textured plugs?

Asked by: Lyndsay
Smooth, however if you install them flat with the board, they are not that visible.

I debated if I was going to use this or just caulk the screw holes with white caulk because they are not cheap. I decided to go for it and very pleased with the results! The screw drills its own hole and the driver sets the depth. The plug fits tightly and the finished look is great! Unless you get very close to the window you cannot see where I installed the screws. Very professional results and worth the cost. I would definitely use them again. I replaced 7 windows and one kit should be enough to complete the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fair to excellent The excellent part is the appearance . . . I've tried everything, white stainless steel trimhead screw, counter-sink and fill - never, never use silicone caulk and nothing even came out poor to barely acceptable. The "fair part is that the screw and bit are undersized for task, especially if the wood behind the Azek hard the screws will strip which is why I pre-drilled the holes. You will too after spending the annoying effort and time of dealing with the stripped screw half way in the hole. But it does look better than any alternative, trust me on that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CLEAN LOOK WHEN FINISHED Didnt want to spend the money at first, but at the end of the job I was really glad I did. The quality of the screws is excellent, and the caps covering the screws makes the fasteners invisible.
