Outside Relaxation - Worry Free

Recently, we asked our talented friends at FixThisBuildThat to give our new HCR-X coated exterior screws a try.  In the midst of a deck rehab it was perfect timing to build an outdoor piece of furniture to enjoy the remainder of fall.


Relax, this modern, deep-set sofa is built with cedar and SPAX HCR-X corrosion resistant fasteners ensuring it will withstand the elements.

Are You Up For A Challenge?

This is the second time that SPAX has been honored to be included in sponsoring the highly impressive and oh-so-creative building contest created by our friends at Desert Woodworks. The IG Builders Challenge (IG stands for Instagram for those of you scratching your heads) second season included 1 plan, 2 weeks and 3 celebrity judges!

So just to give you the low down, participants are given a basic plan (this season a farm table) created by our favorite sisters, Shanty2Chic and only 2 weeks to put their personal spin on their completed creations.

Why Are Code Approved Fasteners Not All Created Equal?

We're thrilled that this year our PowerLag® structural fasteners were given ICC (International Code Council) approval for your job sites!


While we know that there are other brands out there that claim they have approval too and why, you might ask, is this special, different and worth celebrating? Well we thought it was cool and different enough to grab our contractor friend, Mark Clement (who happens to be one of our biggest fanatics), and make a video to explain exactly why you'll need these for your upcoming projects.
