What Are Composite Cladding Screws


Do you need to install a composite cladding? Composite cladding is made of wood or plastic and it’s often used as an exterior wall. It’s very resistant to weather elements like sun, rain, snow, etc. If your installation needs decking screws for the fastening process then this blog post will be helpful for you.

Composite cladding screws are a type of screw used in wood composite cladding and PVC cladding to secure the panels together.

These screws need to combine both strength and durability, with minimal risk of corrosion or rusting.

They are usually made from steel with an electroplated finish, and they come in different sizes depending on the thickness of your paneling. The size is measured by millimeter length, so for example, if you have 3mm thick boards then you will need screws that measure about 12mm long.
