You wouldn’t use a house nail to hang a small picture frame or a furniture tack to assemble a piece of furniture. However, most people will use whatever screws they have on hand to complete repairs or tasks. Screws are always required in the construction of a house. Using the correct screw can help you avoid issues like loose screws, tearing or breaking screw heads, and so on. The full article explains a few different types of screws.
Screws for wood: Wood screws are typically made of brass, steel, or bronze and are designed specifically for use with wood. Most wood screws have unthreaded shanks at the top and coarse threads at the pointed end, making them easy to identify. The screw’s design allows it to slide smoothly and with less resistance through wood fibres, reducing splintering. Angled heads can be flat, round, or oval in shape. On the surface, oval-headed screws, also known as “pan heads,” can be seen, but they are less visible than round-headed screws. Rounded-headed screws are used for decoration, such as in furniture design. When fasteners must be hidden or flush with the surface of the wood, flatheads are used.
Drywall screws: There are two types of drywall screws. They are threaded finely and coarsely. Finely threaded (S-type) screws are used to attach drywall to metal studs, and coarsely threaded (W-type) screws are used to connect drywall to wood. Self-drilling tips for S-types eliminate the need for pre-drilling. Drywall screws with razor-sharp tips go in quickly and don’t rip the drywall. There are several brands to choose from, including those with ceramic, zinc, or phosphate coatings. Some coatings reduce corrosion. Paint Line makes a strong case for using proper drywall screws. I hope this full article demonstrates the types of screws that are commonly used by all people.
