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.
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.
Professional builders will appreciate that DeckWise JOIST TAPE is a malleable polyethylene waterproof wood flashing and material with a rubberized asphalt adhesive. DIYers at home will know that once the tape is applied it blocks moisture, prevents wood rot and extends the life of your deck for years to come!
