    Q:Would these work to attach the 30 gauge metal roofing into the southern pine 2x4? I don't know if I should get something else that goes through metal and stays in wood instead of through the wood first.

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  These fasteners should be able to go through 30 gauge roofing panel and into 2x4 SYP. However, these fasteners are meant for interior applications. If you are installing metal roofing panels to wood, we would recommend looking at our sharp point Teks Roofing or Teks Elite Roofing fasteners that are intended for outdoor metal roof installations.

        These screws seem well made, and suited my purposes well. I used them to secure drawer slides to my drawers. The head is a bit larger than others I’ve used, so where there is limited space, the head will be too large. I also used them to secure drawer bottoms to the drawer at the rear.

        I purchased these to install fence rails to metal posts for a new fence. The rail company recommends a #10 but these seem to be working well. They work into wood easily The heads are made of hard enough steel to be driven with a cordless drill without stripping out. I made sure to use the proper sized bit. Overall, I’m happy with how well these worked.

        crap screws
        The heads keep popping off the screws after a week of being installed there are still heads popping off upon further inspection I find that the slot for the philips head goes all the way into the shank of the screw making the shank at the head very thin I don't know if this is bad batch or of this is the way they make them now I will have to think hard before I use these again

          These screws work well in wood with no predrilling. Excellent for mounting hardware cloth.
