We are in the midst of replacing a couple decks including some joists and all the 2X8 rim boards. We wanted a fastener that wouldn’t show. After searching I found Trex Hideaway fasteners. Deck fastener
These things are slick! We heard too many horror stories about composites so, we are using 2X6 Redwood for decking. The fasteners fit into slots on the board’s edges. Trex sells a router bit to make the slots. Some Trex is already grooved.
The process takes a little longer than face nailing or screwing but, the end result is a smooth, flat deck with consistent spacing AND, no hardware visible.
I highly recommend this system!
