Most beneficial way to do the job.

I am repairing my porch using 5/4 boards.Would you tell me what to use to fasten them down.Should I use screws or nails which are going to show .Is there another way to fasten them.
Thank You!

Re: Most beneficial way to do the job.

I always use stainless steel nails or screws with ACQ wood.
Like Jkirk said...use whatever they used before as far as it being a nail or screw head.
Stainless steel won't corrode when you use PT (ACQ) wood.
