I'm helping a friend with fixing squeaky subfloors, and he says this screw (attached image) is what he found works well. He said he found out thru Internet forums! Can you guys take a look and see if it's a good standard screw? I tried to get in the screwhead also -it's 2 inches in length. What model screws do you recommend to fix subfloors?

The square or Robertson head is wonderful for resistance to cam-out. Also, it looks like your screw has radial ridges that run along the head (collinear to the shank). Those are designed to help countersink the head which is a nice touch. I can get those from my local hardware store but strangely, they are not offered at any of the Big Box stores near me.

That's one of the better screws on the market but keep in mind the best screw installed wrong probably isn't as good as a poorer quality screw installed right.
