fiberglass door screws

I will be installing a Roman shade on a fiberglass door that has a window. What type of screw do I need to use?

Welcome to the forums. Generally fiberglas doors have rails and stiles in their perimeters as do regular wooden doors. Some are even solid. I would use a #6 x 1/2" round head either bright zinc or stainless steel. You would want to predrill your holes with a small drill bit. Let us know if we can help further.

I always use sheet metal screws in the door skins, whether FG, masonite, or steel. Esp for shades or curtain rods (lightweight).

I thought you were talking about the drill point sheet metal screws. My bad. Then definitely drill pilots.
