Starborn Industries has introduced the Deckfast Fascia System to the market, a fastening system designed to hold deck fascia boards together.

Aimed at solving the pain point of expansion and contraction, the Deckfast Fascia System is comprised of a pre-drilling and countersinking tool and color-matched stainless steel or epoxy-coated carbon steel screws.

An over-sized hole is created for the Fascia Screw, allowing the board to experience dimensional changes by "floating" along the deck's rim joist and taking pressure off the fastener.
