Questions & Answers

Would these be suitable for building bunk beds?

Can these be used to build a stand needing to hold roughly 500 pounds spread out?

Asked by: Will
If your doing structural framing ( stud and joist framing as opposed to screwing plywood to a wall or floor) try using GRK R4 multi purpose framing screws. They're cost about 1/3 more but they are made for framing and stand up the stress in the same way nails would. GRK also makes lag screw, which when driven with an impact driver run in like butter. I'm sure there are other brands as well but these are a good go to screw when you want to have uninterrupted sleep at night.

grip rite construction screws. on box it says "for use in any non-structural construction project" Can't use in framing?? and why??
Asked by: Bogie
One issue is that there's no way to verify just HOW it was put in.. A nail gets hammered in to the head. That's it. Its penetration is ALWAYS the same, it just spreads and compresses the wood to an adequate level to allow the passage of the nail shaft. A screw on the other hand, may very well be driven with the head sunk halfway through the board, it may have just "chewed" through the wood at some point instead of really driving itself, etc.: they never know, and thus they're not going to take legal responsibility for it. I've got no problem using an adequately sized, driven, and number of screws for structural purposes, but I can see their logic in not standing behind it when there's lives and property at stake.

What is shear strength of these? Can they be used to sister a split rafter?

Asked by: Hank
Screws typically have less sheer strength than nails For a sister joist I like to use a few screws with some glue to hold it together and then nail it after it is firmly in place.

I find that these work great when building a wood studded wall or work bench . You can feel the grip / control of the Star bit included in the box with less effort than using philips head screws . I switched to this type of screw head a couple of years ago and Home Depot has different sizes and lengths in stock , They exceed my expectations

The box is labeled "Construction Screw", but there is a disclaimer on the box that states that they should not be used for structures. Keep that in mind.
