Hidden Deck Fasteners

Hidden Deck Fasteners

When building a new deck for your home, crafting a solid foundation ensures the durability and longevity of your deck for years to come. A significant decision is choosing which fastening method you’ll want to use on your deck boards. There are two primary systems builders are using today: traditional deck screws and modern hidden fasteners.

Standard deck screws are installed through the top side of a deck board down into the substructure to secure your decking. Hidden fasteners, on the other hand, are a concealed way to attach your decking. The hidden fasteners are installed on the sides of the deck boards to eliminate any visible connectors.

While deck screws are a long-established approach, they can open up your deck boards to possible rot or water damage. With hidden fasteners, your deck's flooring will maintain the smooth feel they had at your initial purchase without any unsightly mushrooming or holes. By not piercing the capstock or surface of your boards, hidden fasteners help keep your base sealed and protected against the elements for a longer-lasting deck with less labor and a beautiful finish.
