Deck Fasteners Installation Method

Professional builders recommend this method of cabin decking installation more than any other. The reasoning is simple; By using hidden deck fasteners, you prevent visual flaws resulting from face screwing and allow the natural beauty of the wood to shine. You also get a stronger, more durable deck overall since deck fasteners allow deck boards to shrink and expand as moisture levels fluctuate throughout the year. If you have any questions, or would like to order, contact us anytime.

1.   We recommend using pregrooved deck boards, since this will greatly speed up installation. If you are using standard deck boards, you will need to groove them yourself.

2.   Insert an Ipe Clip® Hidden Deck Fastener into the groove.

3.   Drive a stainless steel screw through the fastener and into the joist at a 45° angle. You may have to predrill a pilot hole.

4.   Slide the next deck board into place, making sure to leave a 1/16" gap between boards.

For boards at the end of the deck where hidden fasteners won't work, we recommend using the face screw/wood plug method.
