Choosing The Right Screw For The Job


To the untrained eye, one screw is as good as another, but those with a little more awareness have a better chance of realising that choosing the right screw for a particular job can mean the difference between a project succeeding and failing.

The industrial and construction sectors have literally hundreds of different types of screws and fasteners to select from; each type suited for a particular usage e.g. lubricated timber decking screws for quicker driving into outdoor decking, self-drilling screws for the convenience of not having to drill pilot holes and even screws that work specifically with the mechanical properties of plastics.

Before you can choose the best screw for a job you should consider the characteristics you desire in a screw such as:

* Does it need to be waterproof to avoid corrosion from moisture?
* Does the screw head need to be flush with material once it's screwed into place?
* Does the screw need to be protected from vandalism or unauthorised removal?
* Is the screw to be used in wood, metal or perhaps plastic?
* What length of screw is required?

For different types of material there tends to be a different type of screw. Take the following as examples:

* Wood screws designed to perform best in all types of wood including hardwood, MDF and chipboard. Smaller screws have less chance of splitting wood, but if you're using larger screws and/or working near the end of a piece of wood then it's often safer to drill a pilot hole first.

* Floor screws these will cope with the issue of different expansion rates so are best used for securing timber or chipboard to steel supports. Made by a process that ensures a hard exterior whilst retaining a tough, flexible core.

* Self-drilling screws designed for convenience as only a screwdriver is required. These screws drill their own holes and form their own mating threads ensuring the best fit in a single attempt.

* Timber decking screws specially designed to deal with outdoor conditions with durable, protective coatings.

* Frame anchor screws designed for fixing window and door frames made from PVC-U, wood or aluminium directly to brickwork without the need for plugs or nylon anchors.

A general rule of thumb for determining an appropriate length of you should look for a screw length that will allow two-thirds of its length to be embedded into the material being fastened to. So, for example, if you're fastening a 1-inch thick piece of timber to a wooden post then you should be looking at embedding 2-inches of the screw into the post. That means you would require a screw length of 3-inches.

All good screw suppliers will be able to advise on the appropriate screws for your task. The important thing is to appreciate that not all screws are the same and that using the right screw can mean a secure installation, whilst the wrong screw can mean in an accident waiting to happen.

Summer Houses & Log Cabins

Do you want a little hiding place in your garden? What about an extra office space outside? A party room or a playroom for the kids? If you have enough space in your garden , consider buying a summer house or log cabin.

What is the Difference between a Summer House and a Log Cabin?

summer  house

The main difference between garden log cabins and summer houses is the size. Summer houses are more on the smaller side of things while log cabins are usually a little more sturdy and bigger. Log cabins can be a year round option if you have a garden big enough and go for an insulated cabin. Summer houses are mainly for the warmer months as the name suggests.

While log cabins always have a rectangular footprint , summer houses can come in rectangular , hexagonal and corner floor designs. Based on the floor plan , summer houses can have different roof constructions as well and can even look like little pavilions. Corner summer houses are very useful designs that can be fit into garden corners to use up as little space as possible.

Cladding , Roof Types & Special Features

Decide if you need single or double doors , how many windows you want to have , how big they should be and if you would like a veranda for your summer house or log cabin. Next to these little features you have to make decisions about basics like roof structure and cladding.

The simplest form of roof type are flat or pent roofs. Pent roofs are flat roofs that are higher on one end of the summer or garden house , usually the front , to allow rain to run off the roof easily.

Apex roofs are a type of gable roof that have two pitched roof sides that run down on either side of a ridge board. The doors of a log cabin or summer house with an apex roof are on the side of the gable. In the case of a reverse apex roof , the door or doors are on either of the roof sides of the cabin or house.

Hip roofs have a roof side on all four walls of the summer house or garden cabin. In the case of a pyramid roof , all roof sides are triangles. They can be found on summer houses or sheds with a square floor design. A simple hip roof has two triangular sides and two trapezoid sides.

Gazebo roofs are gently tented roofs that can be found on hexagonal summer houses and similar pavilion structures.

Cladding usually comes in two basic varieties: overlap or feather-edge , and tongue & groove. Overlap clad wall constructions have boards that simply overlap one another. Tongue & groove on the other hand has interlocking boards. A special type of tongue and groove cladding is shiplap which is supposed to be the most weather resistant of all three constructions for summer houses and garden cabins.

Decorate your Summer House

Space and your personal taste are the only limits on how to approach interior design for your summer house. Style the windows with curtains , hang up pictures and add ornaments. And , of course , do not forget outdoor cushions , rugs , blankets , a wind chime , outdoor candles and all the other small but important items to add that extra layer of comfort to your little home from home.

Install lights or use lanterns and set up a small table and chairs and maybe a bookcase or bench and your cabin and summer house are all set up for cosy evenings outside in your garden no matter what the weather will be.

Planning Permission for Garden Buildings

Please make sure that you are allowed to set up your dream summer house or log cabin in your garden. For some sites , heights and features like balconies or verandas you might need a permission for garden building like houses , cabins , sheds or garages. Check with the local authorities to make sure you can enjoy your new summer house or log cabin for a long time.

    Does the job very well and looks the part! Cushion cover is vinyl - practical but fabric would be nicer. Good value for he money - the only real downside for me is that I have big feet and some the shoes have to lay sideways - but a pair of Timberland boots will still fit (just)!

    Purchased the large and small for my Kitchen and added some small plants. I really like how it turned out. I also spray painted the metal holders black to tie in my pantry barn door that has black hardware.

    Not even one negative about this at all. My feet are size 10.5.. I didn’t put the backboard piece on the product for this reason and it works perfectly as intended. Looks great and also a bench! 10/10

    This bench is beautiful! The color is as pictured but is even richer in actuality. The bench was super easy to put together. Just know that the last bit of hardware that looks like a screw is a tool to screw into the cams to hold them in place within the predrilled holes. This allows you to align and screw into the cams without guesswork. I withheld the fifth star in reservation regarding the bench's ability to remain outside and withstand weather. In Florida, we leave outdoor furniture out year-round. The directions with the bench advise you to wax the wood periodically and "cover the bench" when not in use. So, we'll see how it holds up! I WILL wax the wood and it'll be so worth it to visually enjoy seeing this bench in my courtyard outside year round!

    These are very cute and exactly as pictured though they are TINY. I don't even have a plant that will fit in here. Just keep that in mind when buying them. Otherwise, they seem well made.

    Not finished putting all together as yet, just stool and table to do. Was not expecting so much self assembley, if any. It was a challenge doing it by myself. I found some screw / connecting points too short too long verses length of screw to allow use of flat/rounds and then bolts. If screws were just 4-5mm longer then much easier.

    Great quality bench seat. Looks good and is solid. Putting it together was a challenge as the long hex screws were hard to get in (forget about using the stupid allen Key provided). Used a torque wrench and that made simple work of it!

    Arrived swiftly and looks good but the quality is cheap. The table wobbles - disappointing as there’s only 3 items in the order! Is it worth £280? No! Wish I hadn’t purchased. Can’t return because it’s big, heavy and probably costly to do so.
