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.

We always want to make sure you have the right clip for your project.  If you are installing Trex decking, keep these points in mind:

  • TC-G Clips are only approved for use with Trex Select grooved decking
  • The Cortex for Trex  fastening system is needed for perimeter boards and stairs
  • Trex Hideaway Steel Fasteners are still the recommended clip for all other Trex decking
  • Trex Hideaway does not fit Trex Select decking
