Stainless vs Galvanized for a deck near the ocean
I’m building a deck out of pressure treated wood near the ocean (about 50 feet away from the high tide mark). Everything I read says to use stainless screws and connectors. However, whenever I talk to any of the local lumber yards (even the big ones that cater to contractors) everyone looks at me funny and says that no one ever does that and galvinized will be fine.
What do you think?
