Drywall TEK® Self-Drilling Screws

Self-Drilling Screws

Drywall TEK® Screws

Fasteners are essential to projects of all kinds, and service professionals often need fasteners designed explicitly for drywall applications. Drywall screws can provide the perfect fastening solution for repair and maintenance projects that do not call for extensive renovation work. But not all stainless-steel drywall screws and self-drilling drywall screws are created equal — you need the right product for your specific job.

It’s critical to choose the right type of screw to minimize the risk of damage to the drywall material. It’s also important to select the screw that offers the appropriate size and thickness for the job. If and when you try to substitute a near solution for the perfect drywall screw fastener, you’ll find that your work slows down and you put the ultimate success of your project in jeopardy.

Drywall TEK® fasteners can be a good choice for older buildings with plaster drywall. Drywall TEK® screws are self-drilling, countersunk fasteners that are well-suited for use in plaster. And, at All Points Fasteners, we offer the selection of self-drilling drywall screws you need for your next project.

What Are Self-Drilling Screws?

Self-drilling screws, such as drywall TEK® screws, feature a drill-shaped point that allows them to cut through material, eliminating the need to drill a pilot hole. They are generally used with more pliable materials, such as soft steel and drywall. The screw points are numbered from one to five — the higher the number, the thicker the material it’s able to penetrate before drilling a pilot hole is required.

Wondering how to drill drywall screws? You can, of course, use a pilot hole if you prefer, as long as you ensure the hole is smaller than the screw — which allows the thread to catch. If you choose to go without a pilot, as you can with self-drilling drywall screws, make sure you have a stable electric screwdriver or drill. Start fastening at the lowest possible speed to ensure the drywall screw fastener goes in straight. Also, be sure to tighten the screw — but not too much. You don’t want it to be so tight you can’t remove it, if necessary.

Over time, the more you use stainless steel drywall screws, the more comfortable you’ll become with their application. Soon you’ll be able to drill screws more quickly, which means more efficient work when you’re engaged in high-volume fastening.
