I built my home in 1999 and 1 year after construction I started seeing the wood grip screws on my 24ga R-Panel start loosining to the point that they would create a leak. I am constantly tightining these screws. Is their any screws on the market that will not loosen?

When screws loosen, it can be due to several things. (1) it was fastened into wood that wasn't fully treated (2) it was fastened into wood that was too thin. (3) the fasteners originally used were too small of diameter I would reccomend replacing all the screws with a larger diameter screw than those currently used, and possibly longer as well.
