We all know that screw fixing offers many advantages over nails. Now, there is an appraised solution for screw fixing timber weatherboards vs the traditional nail fix option!

Simpson Strong-Tie’s collated Trim Head stainless steel weatherboard screws are BRANZ Appraised (No. 1044) for performance you can trust. The collated versions install easily with the Quik Drive tool and have two sizes available in 7g x 65mm and 7g x 75mm. The compact head means minimal filling and ensures consistent depth with every drive, eliminating the need for punching.

The Quik Drive® Weatherboard PRO is designed specifically for installing timber bevel back weatherboards on timber-framed houses. It was developed to provide builders with a faster, easier, and more accurate method for installing timber weatherboard cladding.

The Quik Drive® Weatherboard PRO Attachment, which has a weatherboard clip built-in, offers several unique features that make it a valuable tool for weatherboard installation.

Watch the installation action on TikTok to see how quickly these builders fix their weatherboards, and on YouTube to see how easily these builders get the depth bang on every time.
