Anytime you use longer screws than the originals, you risk punching through the "screw insert" which may result in a hole into the core of the board = leaks water.

Unless you know the exact depth of the insert, you risk damaging the board.

To clarify what I am saying, there are small cylindrical plastic inserts set (glued/epoxied) into the board that the screws screw into. Generally, they are not much longer than the screws.
