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″.

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.

A “Force Field” for Your House: DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap

From severe thunderstorms to freezing temperatures to extreme heat, houses really take a beating. DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® delivers the optimum balance of properties for superior performance against the elements. Their house wraps help prevent outside water from entering the walls and help to seal the home to keep outside air where it belongs. Furthermore, DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap helps reduce your energy bill because homes stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter and dry all year round.

Dupont Tyvek HomeWrap

But how does this super house “force field” work? DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap helps protect a home against damaging wind and rain that can penetrate through the exterior cladding through its unique nonwoven structure that blocks excess water from entering into walls. The breathable structure of this house wrap allows moisture vapor to pass through to help promote drying in wall systems which can aid in preventing the growth of mold and mildew. Moreover, the unique non-woven fiber structure of DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap stops air movement through the walls helping to provide a more energy efficient home.

We at DIY Home Center are pleased to now offer DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap along with other excellent DuPont products, including StuccoWrap®, Tyvek™ RoofLiner® , Flashing and Tyvek™ Tape. These systems work together to provide superior protection against water and air infiltration. Tyvek products give you what you need to build durable, energy-efficient homes and are backed by a limited warranty.
