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.

Deckwise Ipe Clips Option Details
Extreme Ipe Clips 3/32″ or 2, 4 mm gap spacing

Recommended for use with Air Dried Decking

ExtremeKD Ipe Clips 1/4″ or 6, 4 mm gap spacing

Standard Ipe Clips 3/32″ or 2, 4 mm gap 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.

Learn why pros are switching to Tyvek Protec

Industry-Leading Walkability

The unique pattern allows for better traction while walking on the roof, in dry, wet, hot, cold and dirty conditions.


The bottom layer includes a slip-resistance coating providing grip to the roof deck.

Easy to Chalk

Accepts and holds chalk marks for visible lines and a better-finished product.

Trusted Quality

Another innovative material breakthrough from DuPont Tyvek.


DuPont Tyvek products are industry tested and meet a variety of code standards.

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.
