Promax screws for Ipe
I'm considering using Promax 305 stainless steel screws (McFeely's) for my 1x6 Ipe decking. I will be plugging all screws.
The concern I have is that the smallest screw length is 2 3/8ths. From previous posts, several people think that length is fine. But these screws have a longer portion of unthreaded shank (1 5/16ths). Will having a significant portion of the unthreaded shank going into the PT joist cause a problem?
