What kind of fastener should I use with TimberTech?
While installing TimberTech solid planks, we recommend using TimberTech's TOPLoc Face Fastening system or stainless steel or high-quality coated deck screws. For XLM Plank, Earthwood Evolutions Plank, TwinFinish Plank and ReliaBoard: use a minimum #8 x 2-1/2". For DockSider Plank: use a minimum #8 x 3". Refer to our Installation Resources for more information. TimberTech grooved planks are installed using the TimberTech CONCEALoc Hidden Fastener. Follow the directions on the CONCEALoc box or bucket.
Our TOPLoc fascia fastening system eliminates the issues experienced with traditional fastening methods. The TOPLoc Fascia Bit and Fasteners are designed for proper fascia installations every time – allowing the fascia to hang in place.
Designed exclusively for TimberTech planks, TimberTech Cortex provides a discrete, hidden fastening solution for perimeter boards and stairs. Combined with TimberTech’s CONCEALoc for the main decking areas, homeowners can enjoy a true complete hidden fastening solution for the entire deck surface. Refer to our Installation Resources for more information.
TimberTech does not recommend any fastener that is not explicitly stated in the TimberTech Decking and DrySpace Installation Guide. Use of any alternative fastener does not void the TimberTech warranty; however, if a decking failure is caused by using one of these alternative fastening methods, any corresponding claims will be denied.
