Like the name implies, deck nails are used to build outdoor decks and patios. The unique spiral shank design offers superior strength, and is most effective when used with composite decking. Composite decking boards are man-made, and never splinter, rot, or need staining. A brad nailer or finish nailer are types of nail gun which shoots a brad nail or finish nail at high velocity. Zoro has a super selection of box nails, common nails, and deck screws too.
