How to Calculate Deck Boards and Fasteners
Deck Board Fastener Calculation
Step 1. Determine size of deck and direction of deck boards.
Step 2. Determine length of deck board required.
Step 3. Calculate number of deck boards.
Width in inches divided by 5.65 = Number of deck boards.
Step 4. Calculate number of Deck fasteners required.
Tiger Claw Hidden Fastener
13 per board
16 per board
Color Match Stainless Steel Screw
26 per board
32 per board
In the above example:
Required Board Length = 20'
180" divided by 5.65 = 31.85 rounds to (32) 20' boards
32 boards x 16 Tiger Claw per 20' board = (512) Tiger Claw Fasteners
