The correct screw makes things so much easier!
When choosing screws there are a few things to take into account that might save you some heartache in the future. For example using zinc plated screws in treated pine can be a bad mix as the chemicals in treated pine can break down zinc screws over time undetected. You should also take care when screwing into metals, as mixing galvanized screws with stainless steel can also have dire outcomes. When using batten screws a little Vaseline makes it much easier to remove screws in the future.
