3.Application

Concrete Screws are very utility and are ideal for use in fastening applications. These screws come in various sizes and styles which are very easy and fast to install. Besides, concrete screws can be removed without damaging the base materials after installing. These screws can also be installed close to the edge.
Different lengths allow the screws to be used in many applications including studs, plywood, electrical boxes, and exterior insulation systems.
They can also be used for fixing windows or door frames manufactured from wood, plastic, or metal to concrete, brick, hollow brick, or man-made blocks.

4.Installation Steps

(1). Measure the thickness of the material you will fasten to the concrete. Then choose a screw that is 1 to 1.75 inch longer than the thickness of the material.
(2). Choose a drill bit that is suitable for the screws. The diameter of the drill bit should be a little smaller than the screws.
(3). Measure the length of the screw. Then wrap the tape on the drill bit to mark the length of the screw. The tape can avoid drilling too deep in the concrete.
(4). Drill the hole until you reach the tape.
(5). Clean out the excess material from the hole with a wire brush and a vacuum.
(6). Set the material over the hole, and then screw the material into the concrete.

5.FAQs

(1). Can you screw directly into concrete?
While you can drill concrete masonry screws directly into concrete, we recommend drilling pilot holes first before screwing them in for an easier and more secure installation.

(2). Do I need to drill a pilot hole for concrete screws?
We strongly recommend drilling a pilot hole first before screwing in your concrete screws. The pilot hole will help guide the screw into the concrete and should be ~1/4 inch deeper than the length of your screw to catch any dust from drilling the material.

(3). What screws do I need for concrete?
Masonry screws, Concrete screws, Tapcon screws, or Anchor screws are what you’ll need to fasten to concrete. These screws have special threading for tapping holes in concrete and typically have a blue coating on them. They are traditionally available in either a Phillips flat head for flush or finishing applications or in a hex washer head for all other applications.

(4). Are concrete screws removable?
Yes. You can easily remove concrete screws after installation. However, keep in mind that the holding values of the screw will be affected if re-inserted into the same hole. Repeated removal and reinsertion into the same hole can strip the hole out.

(5). What size drill bit should I use for concrete screws?
You want to use a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screw size, about 1/16 of an inch smaller. For example, a 3/16″ concrete screw needs a 5/32″ masonry drill bit while a 1/4″ concrete screw needs a 3/16″ masonry drill bit.
