Gutter Zip Screws - Our New Primer!

by MaryLouise on 10/07/13

Gutter zip screws primer. We are proud to present the third in our series of product primers.

Gutter screws.  They're not what they were during the 80's or 90's.  Like everything else, time has evolved from what used to be a standard 8 x 1 1/2 hex washer needlepoint zip screws  






to our beefy 10 x 1 1/2 hex washer head  needlepoint zip screws with a high profile 1/4" hex head  and a fillet underneath the head to give it extra strength.






One nice feature of this screw is that even though it has a #10 shank it has a 1/4 hex head which is standard with a #8 screw.  Since the gutter and siding industry uses #8 screws, the #8 style head was used on this screw so that the installers wouldn't have to constantly be changing the chucks in their drills from 1/4 inch to 5/16 inch magnetic drivers. In addition, there is a high profile head on the screws so that they will stay in the drivers and not fall out. 

Another option for zip screws used in siding and gutters, is the choice to have a ceramic coating, anywhere from 500 to 1200 salt spray hours of testing, 

Screws with this dacromet coating are perfect for areas that are exposed to moisture and wet weather.  They are also available with the heads painted to match popular siding colors.




For copper gutters, there are many more options available than what was in the past.
Stainless steel zip screws, magnetic and non-magnetic, and copper plated stainless zip screws match the copper gutters.

Copper zip screws

So many more choices for gutter screws!
