These are a great new product we've had in stock for the last 12 months or so.
Traditionally, when fixing a deck, the tradesman had to firstly pre-drill the entire deck then either nail or screw the deck down. Self drilling screws pretty much cut the whole pre-drill part of the process out.
They're not as cheap as a normal fixing screw but the labour cost savings far outweigh any initial expense.
The feedback our builders have given us has been a huge thumbs up. Easy to use and big time savings.
They do reckon it's still a good idea to pre-drill the ends to avoid splits, especially in hardwood.
Have a look at this video to see how easy it is.
