This screw is not recommended for installation into less than 1" of wood. Fasteners installed in less than 1" of solid wood may have an increased potential for sealing or connection failure over time. This may be due to the fasteners being stripped out during installation and/or due to the lack of adequate wood fiber material to hold the fastener in place during thermal movement cycles or other forces which may be exerted upon the connection
