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.

Protect Your Investment with DeckWise JOIST TAPE!


As every homeowner knows, your deck is a significant investment!  In addition to investing in high quality decking, it is equally as important to protect your deck structure. What better way to protect your investment than by creating a waterproof barrier to help stop decay and wood rot?  DeckWise JOIST TAPE is a self-adhesive deck flashing & anti-corrosion barrier made to block moisture and maximize the life of your new deck or restoration.

Prevent Wood Rot and Decay

Prevent Wood Rot and Decay

Rot is caused by moisture that stays in contact with lumber deck framing and the above decking material. When this tape is applied, it creates a water proof seal that blocks contact with water and stops wood rot! Wood decay also occurs when deck screws penetrate the deck board, thus piercing the joist sub-framing. The joist tape seals around decking screws, blocking the primary water pathway into deck joists.

DeckWise JOIST TAPE has multiple applications and is recommended for use on joists, posts, ledger boards, cut ends and more. Additionally, it can be placed between treated lumber and metal surfaces to prevent corrosion of the metal from contact with treated lumber.
