Deck Screws

Find Your Ideal Deck Screws

Fasteners and Connectors

August 21, 2023

At The Deck Supply, we only recommend industry-leading products trusted by pros and weekend warriors alike. When it comes to putting your dream deck together, the right deck screws are essential. Instead of wasting time in the hardware aisle, take a few minutes to learn about our tested, trusted options.

Our Top Recommendations

We thoroughly test all of our products to stand behind our recommendations. As we test deck screws, we also consider other factors such as cost, durability, and overall quality. These are our top recommendations for each category.


When on a tight budget, we typically recommend CAMO Wood Epoxy Coated Screws. These screws are only designed for wood decks. They come with a manufacturer’s warranty, so while they are easy on the wallet, these deck screws give customers peace of mind at a price they can afford.

Being on a budget doesn’t mean you have to compromise quality. These screws are designed to give you the high quality your deck deserves with simple, durable solutions built to fit many budgets. As you discuss your options with our pros, we’ll talk about more than just deck screws. We’ll discuss your desired size, use, and maintenance requirements with every component we include in your dream deck. 


Our toughest screws are built to withstand any conditions. The HULK Fasteners Metal Frame Deck Screws are corrosion-resistant and thoroughly tested by their labs and our pros. HULK screws use an advanced bit lock system to maximize torque transfer. This allows for easier installation and a sturdy, long-lasting connection. 

Many of the commercial professionals that trust The Deck Supply opt for these deck screws because they don’t have to second guess any installation. These fasteners just work. Pros typically choose these screws to hold together steel and wood frames and use a lighter duty option for deck boards and trim.

Overall Quality 

For both wood and uncapped composite materials, one screw stands above the rest. Our CAMO DRIVE 2-3/8″ Collated Edge Deck Screws are our top recommendation for many reasons. These screws combine easy installation and durability with star-pattern heads and available 316 grade steel construction. The DRIVE system saves time and your back by loading strands of screws for the perfect contact every time.


The CAMO DRIVE system is a revolution for contractors and hardcore DIYers alike. With the unique system for semi-automatic screw loading, alignment, and installation, every drive requires less effort making you more efficient. In addition to fast installation, CAMO also delivers quality service. This system comes with the CAMO guarantee. That’s a one-year tool warranty, that will replace the entire system with no fuss or frustration. Unless you like taking your time, we highly recommend this revolutionary tool.

Everything You Want

Getting what you want isn’t always easy, but it is when you talk to our team In our showroom, we carefully select every product to build your dream right the first time. For example, if you’re flipping a house and want to add value without going over budget, our treated wood decking is a great option. On the other hand, if you’re building your forever home and don’t want to compromise, our pros will recommend composite decking and hardware for the lasting quality you’ll see and feel every day.

Everything You’ll Need

To get the most out of your deck, you’ll need the right materials and tools to make it all happen. In our showroom, our decking pros will make sure you get everything you need in one trip. Decking is all we do. So, as we discuss your options for deck screws and other hardware, we’ll make sure to go over your options for deck screws and other aspects you may not have thought about. 

Whether they buy online or in our showroom, contractors, and DIYers trust the products backed by our decades of experience building quality decks.

Discussing Your Design

If you live around our neck of the woods, you know the Midwest is hard on decks. To forgo the extra installation of fasteners, we’ll select your deck screws based on the materials, size, and budget you have in mind. Here’s how each aspect translates to the deck screws we recommend.


The size of your deck will determine how many screws you’ll need. A 1,000-square-foot lake house deck will require a different amount of screws and labor than a backyard deck in the city. While this may seem pretty straightforward, ask yourself: How many times have you made another trip to the hardware store for more materials?


In the great debate between composite or wood decks, it all comes down to what you really want out of your investment. Wood decks are great for budget-minded homeowners who don’t mind doing maintenance from year to year. Composite decks, on the other hand, are best for higher budgets and lower maintenance. Keep in mind that the material you choose for your deck will also impact the type of deck screws you’ll be using as well.


Every decision you make for your home should factor in cost! Unless money is no object, your deck is no different. As we discuss your deck, we’ll talk about more than installation costs. Over time, your deck will need regular maintenance. 

A wood deck may cost less initially, but regular costs from staining, sealing, and replacing boards can add up over time. Composite decks are inherently more durable, so while they may cost more upfront, they often end up saving you money in the long run. No matter what option you choose, The Deck Supply has the best deck screws to put it all together.
