What are the best screws to use for fastening hinges on heavy shed doors? I need something that is rust resistant and long enough 2"-3" to reach the studs. Was considering deck screws (i.e., Spax) - but not sure. Thanks!

Best screws for shed door hinges

Hi Rob,

This is a great question!

I love using 'Construction screws'.

I have been using these recently and you can't beat them for ease of use ( they have a star bit drive!) and functionality.

They have exterior and interior. I mainly shop at lowes so here's what I get ( see the pictures I included with this post).

Lowes used to have a massive section just dedicated to drywall screws and other assorted common screws, now it's mostly geared towards these construction screws I am referring you to. You just can't beat them!

Good luck and please send me pictures of your shed. I'd love to see it when it's finished.

Thank you for visiting my site!
