New Grip-Rite DeckForce exterior screws, offer a high level of performance and longevity due its innovative PrimeGuard Nano Coating that’s engineered for strength, durability and corrosion resistance and carries a lifetime guarantee.

The Grip-Rite DeckForce line includes two different models specifically engineered for wood or composite decking. The wood screws are designed for building wooden decks and fences, with a T-17 auto-pilot tip, dual-action auger threads, a diamond-file shank and a patent pending wedge-lock head. They can be used in both treated and non-treated lumber. The composite screws are suited for composite and PVC decking, with aggressive saw teeth, a T-17 saw tip, and hi-lo threads with an undercut head – to speed installation and achieve the ideal finish.

The wood and composite screws feature T-25 and T-20 star drive heads, respectively, for a secure grip when installing. Both sets of screws are available in multiple colors, allowing installers to color-match to the deck material and provide a clean, uninterrupted look.  

Grip-Rite DeckForce screws are currently available in limited distribution at Lowe’s Home Improvement centers in 1-, 5-, and 25-pound packages for wood screws and 1-, 5-, and 10-pound packages for composite screws. Counter merchandisers are available to customers through their sales representative upon request. Grip-Rite DeckForce screws will launch nationally at the 2024 International Builders Show in Las Vegas.
