Tek screws, also referred to as tech screws, are self-drilling roofing screws that make it far easier to complete roofing installations. These clever tech screws do not need a pilot hole. Therefore, they’re quite nifty at securing roof fixings since they pre drill and fasten in a single motion.
For heavier works, we do stock tek roofing screws suitable for use with a drill or by hand. All our roof and cladding screw products are available in a wide range of lengths, widths and finishes.
As specialist tech screws, tek screws are used within a wide range of roofing work including sheet to steel, sheet to sheet and timber to steel. Why they are so good for these types of applications is that they are self-drilling, meaning they do not need a pilot hole. Pre drilled, tech screws fasten (either by hand or drill) in a single motion.
As roofing fixings, they’re perfect for securing steel sheet to sheet purlins.
As the use of tech screws is quite wide, their design varies considerably. They are manufactured in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, usually with hexagonal or torx heads, although some have inbuilt washers. They are specifically coated for corrosion.
As a general rule, metal roofing screws should be placed about one and half to two feet apart, although no more than this. It really depends on what the metal roofing screws are securing in place and the structure of the roof.
It’s important that they are not placed too close together either. For example, corrugated roof panels are normally secured in place with roofing screws every 2ft.
While the width apart is important, so too is the placement of roofing screws on metal roof panels. Metal roofing screws should be installed down inside the flat of the panel and not on top of the rib. If positioned on top of the rib, there’s an increased chance of them tilting and widening the hole to make the panel come loose.
Correct metal roofing installation starts and ends with the use of the correct fixings and fasteners. Therefore, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.
Firstly, it is important to use the correct metal roofing screws since they will not bend like nails or work themselves loose when the roof contracts. Most importantly, you must ensure that metal fixings and fasteners (roofing screws) are placed correctly for a tight fit. Steel roofing screws should be inside the flat of a roofing panel and not the top of the rib otherwise they may tilt, stretch the hole and come loose.
The cladding screw is quite a novel technology in terms of fixings and fasteners. Most have a raised countersunk head with milled ribs just beneath to ensure they easily sink into cladding. The carefully cut points on the cladding screw make for precise placement without pre-drilling, although this is wood-dependent. Each cladding screw is resistant to corrosion and rust. These types of cladding fixings are available in a wide range of colours and finishes to complement the surrounding cladding.
