what nails do you use for concrete


Concrete nails come in different shapes and sizes for fastening a variety of materials. A common round head nail is ideal for attaching lightweight items to rigid concrete, while hard concrete nails with fluted or spiral shanks offer better holding power for added stability. Roofing nails boast large, flat heads that enable even distribution of the load, essentially stopping the nail from becoming dislodged. Far from being limited to concrete substrates, these nails can be applied to wood surfaces for attaching shingles and other roofing materials.

For fastening into concrete, there’s the handy option of concrete screws. Their specially designed threads securely latch onto the hard or soft surface. With Phillips or hex head styles available, the process is made even easier. To achieve optimal results however, don’t forget to pre-drill a pilot hole before finally securing the screw into place.

When selecting a fastener for concrete, it is vital to contemplate on the nature of the material. If the concrete is soft enough, an ordinary round-headed nail or concrete mortice screw should do the job. Alternatively, for harder varieties of concrete, a durable concrete nail or screw will be required. In case you are uncertain which type of fastener is suitable, consider seeking advice from an expert at the hardware store or a building specialist.
