The Best Deck Material – Deck screws, Post Bases, Caps, and More!
As the snow begins to melt and spring approaches, it signifies one thing at our company: Decking Season is starting!
With decking season getting underway, we proudly announce expanded decking solutions, including new product launches to better serve customers on decking projects.
Stainless Steel Deck Screws
Stainless steel deck screws feature easy installation in wood and composite deck materials with their flat head and notched type 17 point. Our deck screws have a square drive preventing screw stripping for high torque saving time and money replacing stripped screws. Historically, deck screws have either a bugle or countersunk flat head flush installed with decking beams, posts, and boards. Our 305 and 316 stainless steel deck screws resist rust suiting exterior use. Stainless steel is a durable best deck material. For easy fastening, titanium nitride premium power bits are recommended.

Decking Post Bases
Designed anchoring to concrete, post bases hold vertical beams or posts to footings. 316 stainless steel post bases commonly work with stainless wedges for strength as a premier deck material. See our video demonstrating post base install! Post bases include a square washer (two for 8×8) securing the anchor and a stand-off plate covering the anchor head eliminating wood underside holes. Provides high uplift capacity.
Our post bases use 316 stainless steel resisting corrosion even in harsh environments.
Decking Post Caps
Post caps secure wood posts to support beams. They are essential building and reinforcing decks, using 316 stainless steel nails maintaining product warranty since stainless suits deck material needs.
Post cap anchors have one-piece and two-piece adjustable designs in 316 stainless steel.
Decking Joist Hangers
As framing connectors, joist hangers support and set joist ends to beams or girders. Typically deck ledger boards anchor joists and hangers to framing. Stainless steel is an ideal deck material, being strong and corrosion resistant! Joist hangers form the floored parallel pattern on decks.
In decks, hanger height should match joist depth used. Hole numbers indicate nails securing connections. Special holes allow double shear toe-nailing for very strong joist attachments. Correct installing keeps decks strong despite wood changes over time. Hangers come in standard, concealed flange, and skewed types in 316 stainless steel.
Avoid mixing metals; use same grade stainless steel hangers and nails. Only use nails with hangers.
