Typical screws begin to rust almost immediately and lose considerable strength and holding power. After a few years, weather, pool water and chemicals, rain and exposure to salt seriously compromise the strength and integrity of your fasteners. Corroded screws loosen and allow water and corrosive minerals to enter the aluminum, causing it to deteriorate from the inside. Stainless steel screws are softer and may cause electrolysis or aluminum deterioration caused by different metals touching. Both types of screws are susceptible to over torque which can create a gully in the aluminum where water will collect.
Even if your aluminum screen enclosures are well built and designed to resist wind loads, properly anchored, braced and connected; typical fasteners let you down.
We professionally install the best fasteners on the market for your screen enclosure. They are ceramic coated and surrounded with a nylon head to prevent dissimilar metals from touching. We prefer to install these ourselves and back it with a 10 year guarantee, but if you would prefer to do it yourself, we have kits that you may purchase.
