2 1/2" or 3" screws I use GRK. I prefer the no. 10 for the 3", they seem to bite better than the no. 9. The cost to the customer is worth it to me. 😀

I keep a whole supply of spax in the trailer, they are good screws and I can get them at the box store if needed. You will pay more if you go that route.

I use Spak and GRK. They are both available at the box stores near me. I prefer the Spax Multi Material screws over TapCons for hard surface attachment.
