Ipe Clip Hidden Deck Fasteners Review


There are many reasons why DeckWise Ipe Clips have become a contractor and do-it-yourselfer favorite: strength and reliability along with fast and easy installation.

Here are a few more reasons why DeckWise Ipe Clip Hidden Fasteners are the right choice for your project. To start, Deckwise Ipe Clips are available in a variety of colors, sizes, and package quantities. Great for any project small or large, they also come in contractor buckets.

Ipe Clips come in 4 different types, each clip comes in 3 colors. See the chart below to determine which Ipe clip is best for your deck. It’s important to pay close attention to the deck material that you are using, as well as your preferred deck board spacing.

When choosing between the Extreme4 or ExtremeKD clip for a composite deck, the primary difference is the gap spacing. If you are looking for a more narrow gap spacing, the Extreme4 Ipe Clip is the best option. It is also important to look at the installation instructions and product warranty of your decking. Each decking manufacturer has their own specifications.

Tyvek Protec Synthetic Underlayment – Now In Smaller Rolls


Tyvek Protec is fast becoming an industry favorite. Protec is a safe, high-quality underlayment for any roofing type. In our previous blog post on Tyvek Protec we compared Protec 120, 160 and 200 and explained which roof types are compatible with each synthetic roofing underlayment.

To make Protec even more desirable, DuPont is now offering smaller rolls. While all three Protec options: Protec 120, Protec 160 and Protec 200, currently come in 4’x 250’ rolls, they can now be purchased in the new, 4’x 50’ roll sizes. With smaller rolls, you can bid jobs with less waste and have easier to handle rolls when managing underlayment products on a roof.

Don’t Forget Trex Protect – Your Deck Will Thank You


Building a deck is an investment for homeowners. Adding Trex Protect can safeguard your investment by extending the life of your deck. When comparing the cost of joist tape to the long term expense of deck rot, the minimal cost to add tape just makes sense (or cents!).

Designed for use on both beams and joists, Trex Protect comes in two widths: 1 5/8″ Trex Protect Joist Tape and 3 1/8″ Trex Protect Beam Tape. For complete protection, it keeps out moisture from entering around deck fasteners, protects metal joist hangers on wood structures, and secures screws for a long lasting hold.

 

Before installing Trex Protect, it is important to make sure your joists do not have any dirt or debris, to assure proper adhesion.  Watch this short installation video to see how easy it is to install and preserve your deck for years to come.

To complete your deck with a Trex Railing system or Trex RainEscape, go to DIY Home Center.

FrameFast – The Structural Framing Tool Pro Builders are Talking About


DIY Home Center is pleased to announce yet another new addition to our extensive line of quality FastenMaster products. We recently added the FastenMaster FrameFAST structural framing system, a system for attaching deck rafters and trusses with a single 6” patented screw fastener. We are confident that this system can help you frame a home more quickly and safely.

About FrameFast by FastenMaster
FrameFast by FastenMaster helps you create a strong structure, all while working safely on the ground level, not on a ladder or scaffold platform. This patented delivery system consists of both the structural wood FrameFAST screws and the FrameFAST tool. Since you don’t have to move ladders and climb up and down, construction using the FrameFast system can be completed as much as eight times faster than traditional building methods. This system is also code-compliant throughout the United States and Canada, even in hurricane-prone southeastern states. The FrameFAST system can be used to secure common trusses, girder trusses and vaulted ceilings.

 

Benefits of the FrameFast by System
There are many good reasons to use the FrameFast system for your next home construction project. Chief among them are safety and speed. With the FastenMaster FrameFast system, you can work at ground level, so you don’t have to worry about all of the hazards associated with climbing, such as falls and poorly set ladders. In addition, the FrameFast system eliminates the need for pre-drilling, pneumatic hoses and nail guns. FrameFast screws resist corrosion, and every package includes a free bit.
