Screws or Nails

When you’re beginning a new DIY project you may not think about the difference between what type of fasteners you will use – nails or screws. Believe it or not there is a time to use one over the other. Here are a few reasons why you may want to choose a nail or a screw for your next project.


–       Holds heavy objects well

–       Can be hidden and filled in after placed

–       Cheaper than screws in most cases

–       More flexible under pressure

–       Good for exterior uses, interior finishes and framing jobs


–       Can be easily removed, good for temporary projects

–       Often necessary to drill a starter hole to prevent splitting

–       Better for projects where two pieces are joined together

–       Causes less vibration or damage

–       Good for decking, cabinetry and temporary jobs
