#6-18 x 1-1/4 Slotted Flat Head Wood Screw, Brass


Use a wood screw when you need more holding power than a nail can provide. Wood screws are threaded at least two-thirds of their length and have a sharp point to facilitate entry. To prevent splitting, we recommend that you drill a starter hole slightly smaller than the screw you’re installing; use a countersink to create a recess for flat and oval head screws. Brass is basically 2/3 copper and 1/3 zinc. It is nonmagnetic with high electrical conductivity. It has good corrosion resistance. Brass is commonly used by electrical and communications industries, builders hardware and some marine applications. The Flat Head has a countersunk flat head with a cone-shaped bearing surface. Used in applications where the protrusion of the fastener above the bearing surface is unacceptable.

Q&A: Removing concrete slab to build wood deck but worried about water entering basement?

Question by bridoc22: Removing concrete slab to build wood deck but worried about water entering basement?
So I have a concrete slab attached to the back of my house that is in extremely bad shape (cracked, lifted). I want to add deck off the back of my house but to do so I have to remove the concrete first. What are my options after removing the concrete to keep water out of my basement since the concrete is currently keeping the water from soaking into the ground and getting in the basement. Also, what is the best process at removing the concrete and also disposing of it.

Best answer:

Answer by oil field trash
Since your existing concrete is cracked and lifted, putting down a heavy plastic sheet probably would be a good or better than the existing concrete.

If possible you might want to slope the soil aways from the house to aid the drainage.

You might also cosider a shallow french drain to help with any water that gets near the foundation.
