Using the proper fastening system can literally, make or break your deck. You can own the most gorgeous Tigerwood deck in the world, but if you haven’t used the proper fasteners, you can be standing on a ticking time bomb.
Stainless steel fasteners are the industry standard. These fasteners are rated to resist weathering, rust, and corrosion. Anything less than this can, over time, cause your deck to fail. Tigerwood decking is a dense hardwood and it requires strong reliable fasteners to ensure its safety and stability.
When you are installing fasteners into your Tigerwood deck, it is crucial that you predrill before installing the final fastener. If you decide not to predrill it will leave you with a lot of split boards, ruined drill bits, and headaches.
We even recommend using Deckwise® hidden deck fasteners. These invisible fasteners give you a blemish and splinter free surface. Don’t be fooled by the concealed fasteners, these fasteners still require predrilling.
Don’t skimp on the fasteners. Spending a little extra money now, can give you many priceless years on your Tigerwood Deck. You don’t just want your deck to look stunning, you want it to be safe and last too.
