Hi, I'm Tim - Sales Manager at Better Hardware.  I renovate property myself and understand how important it is to get a job nailed like the professionals and with the least amount of time and fuss as possible.

Like you I just want to get a great job done right the first time.

That's why we've decided to extend our decking range to include the Powers family, one of Australia's leading fastening brands.

As a business owner it's pretty simple, I want YOU to rave about how good your deck looks to your friends and family and to enjoy it for many years to come. Your success is our success and we'd love for you to come back and shop with us again.

3. No more hammering in dangerous, popped up nails due to board flexing, year after year .

Ultimately you'll end up saving yourself time and you'll reduce the stress and hassle with building a deck AND you'll gain longer lasting satisfaction with a quality finish.

OK, so then you might ask yourself...

Handy Tip

How To Calculate The Number Of Screws To Build Your Deck

   Determining how many screws are required for your deck depends on the surface area of your deck.
   For example, if you have 225 lineal metres of decking timber laid across joists at spaced at 450mm and you're
   using two screws at each joist, then you'll need 1000 screws.

   To calculate this, use the following formula:

Number of lineal metres x Number of screws at each joist


Space between joists

For the above example:

225 lineal metres x 2 screws


0.45 (converted 450mm to metres)

= 1000 screws

Don't forget these screws are available in 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000 lots at discounted rates in our Better Hardware StoreBetter Hardware Store. Don't Pay $140+ for 1000 screws in bricks and mortar stores, get them heaps cheaper, save yourself the hassle and have them shipped to you FAST!


Grade 304 Stainless Steel

Perfect for all types of hardwoods and softwoods, stainless steel is resistant to corrosion.  It has an outer layer film that automatically redistributes whenever the surface is scratched, protecting the layers beneath.  This makes it ideal for decking as it is highly resistant to rust and won't stain the timber.  Grade 304 has been quality tested for Australian coastal areas, typically inland at least 300 metres. 

In contrast, Grade 316 Stainless Steel is a higher grade, higher in cost and is designed to withstand the toughest environmental conditions and is ideally suited to situations where is there is exposure to salt water, chlorinated water or constantly wet marine environments.

Countersunk Flat Head

As the name implies, the head is flat and sits just beneath the surface of your deck. Another decking screw head available in our store is a 9G 53mm Trim Head, which has a smaller diameter, is narrower and with a lower profile head. The countersinking feature of the SMART-BIT creates a groove for the countersunk head, without leaving any "furry" timber chips around the hole edge, giving you a crisp, clean finish.

10 Gauge

The gauge diameter is the shaft diameter - between the head and thread.


The length is measured from the top the head.  At least 25mm embedment into the timber joist is recommended. Typically, 50-53mm screws are recommended when using 19-25mm thick decking timber. The thread length is 38mm.

#2 Square drive

More popular with decking screws, the square drive bit is much less likely to burr (strip) the screw head or slip out compared with a Phillips head.  If the driver slips out then you're going to get scratches and marks all over your brand new decking.  Note: make sure you use a drill with a clutch and if you can get one, a cordless impact driver. This screw head has a #2 square drive.

Rib Head

The 4 ribs (or nibbs) help carve out the timber for the countersunk head to fit just beneath the timber surface.  Countersinking (through a tool such as the SMART-BIT) is still recommended to avoid frayed splintering around the countersunk head, so you end up with a nice, smooth finish, safe for bare feet.

Type 17 Point

This long, fluted sharp tip helps cut a path for its thread and captures wood chips, as the screw is driven into timber.  We recommend pre-drilling and countersinking for hardwoods and softwoods by using the SMART-BIT available in the Better Hardware StoreBetter Hardware Store.  Pre-drilling will not only allow you to more easily drive in the screw, but it also acts as a guide so your screw goes in straight each time.  


FACT:  10's of millions of the Powers Timberdek Decking Screws are used in projects across Australia every year.  Powers are a major fastening supplier to the construction industry in Australia and abroad. Discover the screws used by builders and tradesmen nationally, day in day out.  Don't take our word for it, go and ask one!

Tip #3

Avoid The Pain Of Stripping/Burring The Heads Off Your Screws

Consider using a cordless impact driver rather than a drill.  A cordless impact driver has higher torque and is designed specifically for driving in screws.  You need to be careful however, as the higher torque has the ability to strip off the heads of the screws if they encounter resistance.  This is where pre-drilling is essential.  Impact drivers can range from $200-$700.  There are some great deals available for cordless drill and cordless impact driver sets.  If you do a fair amount of DIY then the impact driver could be a good investment.

A cordless drill with a clutch will stop driving if it encounters too much resistance.

You can also consider lubricating the screws with linseed (or even cooking oil) to help drive them in.

Other times where you might strip your screw heads:

  • The screw is being driven into hardwood and encounters friction or hits a knot in the wood, the torque setting on the driver is too high and it continues to drive in the screw, snapping the screw head off.
  • No pre-drilling has been done, especially with hardwood and the screw encounters friction or hits a knot.

Check Out The Feedback From Some Of Our Happy Customers

Hello Tim,

I bought some Bremick screws from you, I must say I am extremely impressed with the quality of the screws and the excellent customer service you gave me. The SMART-BIT was also a money and time saver as I was able to complete my decking in 1 day (picture attached). The SMART-BIT was perfect in that it countersunk to the exact size of my screws and left no burrs around the top of the countersink. The Bremick screws and SMART-BIT through you were half the price my local big hardware store sells them for, so for anyone wanting to build a deck I suggest you do your homework and then place your order with Better Hardware you wont be disappointed.

Thanks again Tim

Hey Tim

I just wanted to write and say thank you - the service we received from you from start to finish was amazing. The delivery time was exceptionally quick and the product was just what we were looking for... we wanted something to last, but not cost the earth yet do the job. We found it in Better Hardware and couldn't be happier. The tools supplied were efficient and most importantly not complicated; when time is limited a good product is an easy product. We have and will continue to recommend you whilst we sit back and enjoy our work.

Thanks again Tim

Belinda Phillips (QLD)

PS: even the pool inspector commented as to why we used screws, very impressed when i explained... i gave him your name so hopefully he may even pass on to clients on his first inspections...

Hi Tim,

I just received the screws I bought from you on eBay. I don't know how you make money because for what I bought 1000 screws from you for I can't even buy 500 brand name comparable decking screws from the hardware store. And a free SMART-BIT, that's way too good. Thank-you very much indeed. I've just left Top Feedback for you. I have only one regret and that's that I hadn't found you years ago I've spent hundreds and hundreds on decking screws in the past I could've saved myself a fortune.

Thank-you again and all the best,

Aaren Beszelzen (Victoria)


Received the screws today and the brilliant SMART-BIT. This little tool saves a heap of time by drilling to the right depth and counter sinking all on one action. What a simple tool to use!!!

Thanks for your prompt delivery of my order and I will be recommending your online store to my friends.

Tip #6

Always Pre-Drill and Countersink

  • Pre-drilling is important for both hardwood and softwood timber boards. It is accomplished most easily using a pre-drill and all-in-one countersinking tool (such as the SMART-BIT).
  • Pre-drilling provides a number of functions:
    - Gives the screws a guide, so they go in straight
    - Not pre-drilling, especially with hardwood, will make it very difficult to drive your screws into the timber. This is where screw heads can shear or snap off completely.
    - If you don't pre-drill and countersink, then as the countersunk head pushes into the deck, it can tend to crack and chip the surface, leaving frayed splinters bits around the screw head.
    - If you don't countersink and pre-drill the end of your boards, cracking can occur (see below).
  • When pre-drilling with the SMART-BIT, make sure you are drilling perfectly straight down. If the collar hits the board at an angle, it will try to bend the drill bit in the board, while you're drilling. This will snap the bit. Also, clean out the hardwood from the end of the drill bit to ensure it doesn't work too hard, overheat and snap.
  • An all-in-one pre-drilling and countersinking tool like the SMART-BIT will save you time and hassle with screwing in your deck. The in-built countersink allows your Flat screw head to sit just below the surface of the timber deck, creating a perfectly smooth finish. This makes it safer to use and looks better too. It also prevents frayed splinters of wood that can occur when you drive in the screw without countersinking.
