    Re: HB screws

    When you buy Hardibacker at one of the big hardware stores, there is a type of screw specifically designed for use with it that is usually sitting close by.
    It looks like a drywall screw, but with coarser threads. They have the fluted shaft and screw in flush with the Hardibacker. The bucket of screws I bought
    came with a square headed drive bit that is specifically for use on these screws.
