Questions & Answers

Can these screws be used to hang sheetrock?

Can these screws be used to hang sheetrock?
Asked by: Happy
Though the length is a bit long, the design of the tip and threads should pull into the lumber or thin metal perfectly. and should have only a small dimple to cover up.

How well would these work on a cmu (cement masonary unit [cinder block] wall for shelving? I am familiar with tapcon, hoping these are cheaper. Thanks!
Asked by: Steve
I don't think these are the screws you want for that job. As with any ordinary screws, cinder block will require anchors which requires a masonry bit. This isn't to say you couldn't use these screws (you could) with anchors. Something you might consider are Tap Con screws. These are an extremely hard screw (typically painted blue) that can be screwed directly into masonry (after drilling the hole) no anchors needed. When used properly Tap Con screws are by far best for masonry. If your still preferring to use anchors, you only need a regular screw, recommend a chrome plated screw with a Phillips head. Be sure the screws are the proper size for the anchors and the masonry drill bit is the right size for the anchors. Tip: a hammer drill works best. Very fast.

As I understand it, these particular screws cannot not be used in pressure treated lumber, what screws do you recommend for pressure treated lumber
Asked by: Horse
Screws have changed and so has pressure treated lumber. Due to environmental concerns pressure treated lumber has undergone changes that renders it less corrosive than previous processed lumber which pretty much rendered exclusive use of galvanized nails or screws in order to resist acidic corrosion. This isn't so much the case anymore. However, in regards to your comment, the screws listed here are designated as "construction" screws. In no way does that imply they are meant to be used for deck screws. These are typically intended for conventional lumber and conventional framing not requiring pressure treated lumber. Whenever working with pressure treated lumber, should use screws designated for that job. Typically one would use screws designated as "Deck" screws for applications using pressure treated lumber in order to resist the corrosive nature of these types of wood. Even modern deck lumber contains corrosive chemicals that can deteriorate most conventional construction screws. Therefore it is important when constructing with pressure treated lumber to use the proper fastener. This is typically a class of screws that are specifically heat treated and coated with a corrosion resistant finish. Sold under many brands, will always be designated as "deck" or porch screws. Using the proper fastener for the job will help keep it looking good while maintaining strength and integrity.

Would these pass code inspection under International residential code (IRC)?

Would these pass code inspection under International residential code (IRC)?
Asked by: kappa
This screw is difficult to identify by picture alone and except for it's size and quantity tells me nothing more of which screws this is. It appears to be a "Grip-Rite" fluted or bugle head, plated, self drilling, with a T-25 driving head. Typically construction screws of this type will meet or exceed any and all construction code when used for the application as intended. In other words, if these are designed as framing screws, will meet all requirements for framing. Decking screws for decking, etc. Not to be confused with drywall screws which are often referred to as multi purpose construction screws. However, that traditional black drywall screw, though it may work well for many small odd jobs around the house or yard, tend to be brittle and break easily under torque. They also corrode readily hence are intended for interior use. However, the Grip-Rite screws (and others) are made in varying hardness's and plated for corrosion resistance. The simple answer here is yes this screw will pass all inspections that may required for structural stability. Beyond that, with modern construction screws, are as many opinions as screw brands and types themselves.. There are also still those who prefer a nail in almost every application. Personally I like nails for speed. However, if you want to split a board, nails will do this just about as often as anything. Others prefer a Philips head screw. But I've found these don't hold to a bit well especially after many have been used and are prone to "cam-out" (rounding of the head). I have come to prefer the screws pictured (various brands) for the plating, bugle head design and self drilling capability along with the torx drive. Anti corrosion needs no explanation. Self drilling and bugle designs allow screws to be driven without having to pre-drill while almost eliminating board splitting. Torx head design generally allows for one hand when driving a screw since the torx bit has a large contact area in the screw head. They hold to the bit better than Philips as well as torque better and very little cam out. And finally, flat headed designs are easily counter sunk whenever you want a clean look. I've included one site for literature and fastener comparison. My suggestion is to view several and become familiar with the various brands and features of modern construction screws. In the end, it will come down to what features best suit your working habits. http://www.grip-rite.com/us/en/products/fasteners/primeguard-plus/exterior-screw---coated
