I had sort of a follow up question that wasn't addressed here: Difference wood and deck screws

Generally, does an exterior grade deck screw have the same strength as a construction screw?

  • Personally, I would use them interchangeably if they would be used indoors. If you are concerned about the strength of screws where you are questioning deck version construction, you might want to upgrade to structural screws. – UnhandledExcepSean Jan 9 at 15:04
