Deck screws play a big role, not only in the quality of a deck's construction, but also in a deck's appearance. Face screwing deck boards has proven to be the best method for fastening.
For the ultimate secured hidden fastener, choose the Abaco Pro Plug® System by Starborn Industries. This system allows you to hide the fastener with a real Abaco wood deck plug. Installation is quick and easy. What’s more, it leaves a beautifully matched finish and will perform perfectly for years to come.
For those who want the benefits of face screwing with the aesthetic appeal of hidden fastening, Abaco recommends innovative top down fasteners. The Headcote stainless steel screw (Brown #34) with color-coated head is designed to blend in with Abaco. Featuring a square head, the 2.5-inch screw is a great fit for securing Abaco ribbed surface deck boards, smooth fascia and more.
If your deck boards are grooved or slotted you may want to choose the Abaco Clip Fastener or a metal hidden fastener specifically designed for hardwood decking.
