    Hi,
    I am looking to reinforce the floor of my shed as we're going to use it as a gym. I've ordered some 19mm ply, but need some advice on what screws to use to keep it flat. The shed floor is approx 1" thick. I've looked on screwf** but there are too many types, wood, timber, decking ??? help !!

    cheers
    Rich

    no problem going for the joist but then you need 2.5 times material thickness in the joists so 18mm plus 19mm + 27mm = 60-70mm off 4.5-5mm or mega money for screws where as the floor will by its nature will be very secure :D
