Whether you are installing merbau decking, treated pine decking or getting any of those latest projects around the house, there’s nothing worse than starting that latest DIY job and getting half-way in only to realise you don’t have all the materials you need.
Having to stop what you’re doing and run to the nearest hardware shop is a great way to waste time and ensure that project takes an extra hour or – let’s face it – an extra week to complete.
Whatever you are getting done around the house, it’s important to plan for the job and ensure you have all the nails, screws and fence hinges you need to get the job done efficiently.
So, whatever the job, here are five must-buy timber hardware and accessories you need.

If you’re buying Merbau or Treated Pine decking, then you’re going to need a lot of nails to fix everything into place.

Screws are a bit like lightbulbs.
You never know when you might need them, but when you do, you’ll be glad you have some extras lying around.
A great tip is to have a look at all your cabinetry and hinges and ensure you have a few extra lying around in case you need them.
Another good thing to do is to order an extra box when you’re putting together your latest DIY project around the house to make sure there’s enough for the job and some spare in the event you need extras.
