A shower stall with clear wood, and clear finish? How long will that last without a refinish? Why isn't maintenance thought about in the design work?
I'm interested in hearing people's experience with deck screws - not just the manufacturers. I have used many different types, and while corrosion resistance is important - our biggest problems have been breakage or stripped heads. We're trying out the Trio star drives (painted) and so far so good. But what about in 5 years when we need to do a deck repair? We have found stainless brittle, and too often break when removed, so we avoid them. BTW, even stainless steel rusts on the coast!
