Ceramic Coated Screws


can you use Ceramic coated square head screws for the new pressure treated lumber? I heard you have to use stainless, is that correct? Thanks.

The ones I have seen thus far put an acq approved tag right on the box. If they don't I would look into it. Heres a link http://www.treatedwood.com/fastener.pdf

Ceramic Coated Screws


Thanks Bob, I will be sure to check the boxes. I have a few boxes of screws left over from my last deck I built 6 years ago. I take it I shouldnt use them?
