Hang Things with Stucco Screws

Stucco screws are similar to concrete screws. They’re harder than wood screws with deeper, coarser threads. They come in various lengths, but one-and-a-half inches is long enough for hanging most items on stucco siding.

Choose a bit with a slightly smaller diameter than the screw shank and operate the drill on low speed to prevent overheating. Use a Phillips or star-head bit, depending on the screw.
