How To Install Trex Select Decking with Hidden Fasteners


Using the Tiger Claw TC-G clip system with Trex Select decking boards, is Trex approved. In other words, Trex Select can now be gun-installed using the TC-G clips. If you have used the TigerClaw TC-G system in the past, you know what a time-saver this system is and how easy it is to work with.

The free TC-G gun promo is the perfect way to get your Trex Select decking installed fast and cost effectively. Just buy 2 buckets of Tiger Claw TC-G hidden fasteners and 2 boxes of screw nails and get a Free Tiger Claw Installation Gun with free shipping. (Certain restrictions apply and this deal won’t last forever.)

Watch this short installation video to see just how easy it is to create a fastener-free look with TigerClaw TC-G clips and installation gun.

We always want to make sure you have the right clip for your project.  If you are installing Trex decking, keep these points in mind:

  • TC-G Clips are only approved for use with Trex Select grooved decking
  • The Cortex for Trex  fastening system is needed for perimeter boards and stairs
  • Trex Hideaway Steel Fasteners are still the recommended clip for all other Trex decking
  • Trex Hideaway does not fit Trex Select decking

Have a Trex Select decking installation planned? Make sure to check out DIY Home Center and TigerClaw TC-G Clips.

FrameFast – The Structural Framing Tool Pro Builders are Talking About


DIY Home Center is pleased to announce yet another new addition to our extensive line of quality FastenMaster products. We recently added the FastenMaster FrameFAST structural framing system, a system for attaching deck rafters and trusses with a single 6” patented screw fastener. We are confident that this system can help you frame a home more quickly and safely.

About FrameFast by FastenMaster
FrameFast by FastenMaster helps you create a strong structure, all while working safely on the ground level, not on a ladder or scaffold platform. This patented delivery system consists of both the structural wood FrameFAST screws and the FrameFAST tool. Since you don’t have to move ladders and climb up and down, construction using the FrameFast system can be completed as much as eight times faster than traditional building methods. This system is also code-compliant throughout the United States and Canada, even in hurricane-prone southeastern states. The FrameFAST system can be used to secure common trusses, girder trusses and vaulted ceilings.

 

Benefits of the FrameFast by System
There are many good reasons to use the FrameFast system for your next home construction project. Chief among them are safety and speed. With the FastenMaster FrameFast system, you can work at ground level, so you don’t have to worry about all of the hazards associated with climbing, such as falls and poorly set ladders. In addition, the FrameFast system eliminates the need for pre-drilling, pneumatic hoses and nail guns. FrameFast screws resist corrosion, and every package includes a free bit.

Benefits of Cable Railings
There are many good reasons to choose cable railing over wooden rails. For one thing, they are much less intrusive and will make your deck appear larger and more open. Cable railings won’t obstruct your view as wooden spindles do, allowing you to fully enjoy that water, woods or city view. In addition, stainless steel cable railings require very little maintenance, unlike wood that has to be sealed or stained every few years. Cable railings are also versatile and adapt to most every architectural and design style, including use as an interior railing. They can be installed either horizontally or vertically. Of course, stainless steel cables also add value to your home when it comes time to put your property on the market. Since cable rails are very durable, the new homeowner knows that he or she won’t have to replace them for years to come.

Starborn Industries Screws and Fasteners – Now Available at DIY Home Center


DIY Home Center is thrilled to announce that we have just started carrying quality products by Starborn Industries. We think Starborn fasteners and screws are a great addition to our wide selection of decking products. At DIY Home Center, we are committed to being your one-stop resource for all of the materials you need to create a beautiful, luxurious deck.

Pro Plug System

The Starborn Pro Plug system is used for decks, trim and wood projects, popular choices are composite deck plugs and wood deck plugs. This is a two-piece fastener system. First, you drill a long wood screw into the wood, leaving it about 1/2 below the surface. Then, you top the screw with a dab of wood glue and top with a wooden plug. Not only does this system hold the wood boards in place for years to come, it creates a smooth, seamless deck surface. You also don’t have to worry about rust stains from the screws coming into contact with rainwater and melting snow. The screws in the Starborn Pro Plug system are available in two lengths — 1 5/8″ and 2 1/2″.

Pro Plug System for PVC

Headcote Screws

Another popular Starborn product that we’ve added are Headcote screws. These fasteners are used for hardwood, cedar, redwood and pressure-treated decking. They feature color-matched heads so that the fasteners blend in with the flooring, decking or baseboards. The color finish is added using a powder-coated technique where the color actually fuses to the metal. This means that you don’t have to worry about the color chipping or flaking, even in heavy traffic areas. Starborn Headcote screws are available in many different hues.
