The difference is that this is a rather rudimentary question, which is easily handled with a modicum of research. In actuality, any professional capable of building a deck, should be able to come up with the answers to using a concealed fastener system in about five minutes at your local lumber yard.whats the difference?
I wouldnt want to screw over either. If theres a problem that you know or a better product please tell me.
I imagine that you're past this by now, but I'll put up this info for someone who might need it. Shadoe Track makes a concealed fastening system that is a track that attaches to the top of the joist allowing fastening of the flooring from below. The tracks come in 4' lengths and another length that I haven't used. Their 4' Pre Pack comes with 20 tracks, screws and nails. Shadoe Track is the manufacturer 800.742.3632 - Pan American (in NC) is the distributer 800.951.2222 - Lowe's is a retailer but does not stock the item, it must be ordered. Take the above numbers to Lowe's and they can price and order it. Hope this helps.Im putting in a cedar deck for someone and they want me to use the blind nailing method. Ive used the Trex version which was pretty good but whats out there for Cedar?
Any recommendations would be appreciated.
