GuardDog® is an incredibly versatile exterior wood screw that can be used in a variety of applications: pressure-treated decking, stair stringers, railings, deck frame blocking, dimension headers, pergolas and more.
Paired with a TORX® ttap® Drive System, you get a stick-fit, wobble-free installation. It’s created with versatile head styles, so it can also be used with the Pozisquare Drive (a free PoziSquare driver bit is included), #2 square drive and Phillips drive.
A lot of screws in the market are labeled as being appropriate for all exterior applications, but unfortunately, only a few hold up to the elements and that promise. GuardDog® screws are guaranteed corrosion-resistant for the entire life of your project. It has anti-corrosion technologies that are matched for alkaline copper quat (ACQ).
The color of the screws helps the fastener blend in with natural and pressure-treated wood tones, meaning your screws will aesthetically blend with your material, whether you choose to use pressure-treated wood, chemically-treated lumber, cedar or redwood. These screws have a Sharp Type 17 Point for quick installation, and nibs under the head help deliver a clean, finished look.
The sharp threads of the screw quickly penetrate lumber, speeding up the installation process. After installation is complete, GuardDog® screws are UV resistant to fading or chalking, so you get peace of mind and a long-lasting, beautiful project completed.
