This is one of the drawbacks to using screws for deck assembly. But the positives still outway the negatives. The way I remove them is to drill out the screw head with a 1/4" or similar size bit. Then pry the board over the screw. Once the board is off you can break the screw off with a couple taps of a hammer.
