How do I know how many NewTechWood / Starborn deck screws I need for my installation?

← All Topics
While you’ll want to confirm with your contractor, as a general rule, you need to use two screws every 16 inches. This comes to 24 screws per board. Since each box of deck screws is a 100 pack, this roughly means you can cover 4 boards of 16 foot each per pack of screws. This also means that each box of deck screws covers roughly 25 square feet. Therefore, you’ll need 4 boxes per 100 square feet of decking, generally speaking.
