Hardware & Fasteners
Camo Hidden Fastening System – We stock the Camo Marksman Pro. This tool works for most decking materials: cedar, redwood, treated pine, hardwood, and composite. It is contractor-grade, and DIY priced. It is one of the easiest and most economical hidden fastening systems you’ll find. An added plus is you can remove a single board if you need to since you have access to the screws. It also automatically sets a 3/16″ space, which is important for drainage and ventilation.
There is finally an option for wood connectors that are both decorative and structural. Ozco Building Products has come out with the OWT line that offers a galvanized and powder coated connector that offers a rustic look to Pergolas and Patio Covers, or any other outdoor project you can imagine. Stop by and see all the options, and our display out front.
Simpson Strong-tie – You will find a wide range of Simpson products in stock. We keep most sizes of joist hangers, Joist HangerRafter Tieconnectors, and ties. We also stock post bases for 4×4’s, 4×6’s, and 6×6’s rough and smooth, plus rough 8×8 post bases. You will also find a large selection of concrete anchors including wedge anchors, sleeve anchors, tapcon screws, and large diameter tapcons
Quik Drive – For the professional that installs a lot of decking there is one essential tool to have. Quik Drive auto-feed screw driving QuikDrivesystems are ideal because they feature quick-loading screw strips, precise countersink adjustment, and a patented auto-advance mechanism.

GRK Fasteners – If you have not used a GRK screw, it is time to try one. We stock the RSS structural lags. They have higher shear strength than that of larger traditional lags and there is no need to pre-drill. These are hard to beat. We also stock the R4 multi-purpose screws in lengths ranging from 1 ½” to 6 3/8”. The newest addition to our GRK fasteners are the trim head screws. These are available 1 1/2″ to 3 1/8″ in length. The Climatek coating used on these fasteners is the most advanced of its kind.

We also stock a good selection of standard Tapcon screws, as well as a range of sizes of Redhead LDT’s (Large Diameter Tapcon) screws. If you have not tried the large version of the standard Tapcon screw, you have been missing out on a versatile fastener.
Duo-Fast – We keep this brand of pneumatic fastener both for the quality they offer and the variety. Not only do they make a high quality nail gun, they also offer fasteners to fit all of the other leading brands. We stock nails to fit most brands of nailers used, including Paslode and Hitatchi.
