Pressure Treated Lumber
There are several screw options available for building with Pressure Treated (ACQ) Lumber:
For 2x4 or 2x6 decking material, choose our exclusive ProMax screws. Their optimized thread length eliminates cross-threading. NoCoRode PLUS plated and 305 stainless steel screws offer exceptional corrosion resistance in non-marine environments. For seaside applications, use 316 stainless steel.
Working with composite lumber often results in a "mushroom" effect where the debris from the screw hole forms a mound around the screw head. Special transverse threading on these screws eliminates that effect plus they come in different colors so you can match your fastener to your material!
If you're building a fence in a non-marine environment, our NoCoRode PLUS plated screws offer the highest available corrosion resistance in a plated screw. For marine environments, or when using acidic wood such as Redwood or Western Red Cedar, stainless steel is a better choice.
