Hiding Fasteners on Deck Material

I am redecking the deck and have chosen a composite material for the field that has its own proprietary hidden fastener system. No problem.

However, I would also like to hide the fasteners for the "border" boards which surround the field on the edge of the deck, and the trim boards which hide the band joist, stair stringer, etc.

I see Azek has a system for hiding face driven fasteners (plugs), but it is only offered with their smooth product, not any grained products, which limits my color selection, and would not match the wood grain of the deck field. Does anyone know of a way to hide the fasteners for the wood grain material used on deck borders and trim boards?

Not sure of the longevity of it, but you could countersink your fasteners and make plugs with a plug cutter to fit the holes from scrap composite material. Gluing the plugs would be the method, with a waterproof or polyurethane glue.

Use trim head cramic coated deck screw, once there is a light tap with a hammer where the screw went on and it's hidden.

Thanks for the ideas!

I figured out to hide the border boards; I'll just reuse the clips used on my old system.

Good ideas on the ceramic coated deck screws and the plugs. Thanks.
