Can you use any screw with Joist Hangers?

You can use screws explicitly made for joist hangers. However, avoid using any other types of screws as they cannot support joist loads and are not designed to withstand shear force. While screws made specifically for joist hanger support are an option, there are other types of attachments used.

Are Joist Hangers load-bearing?

Joist hangers can be used anywhere you need to strengthen a load-bearing connection. Joist hangers use face mount attachments to fasten joists to ledger boards and beams. You can buy joist hangers for different sized lumber.
