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.

Screw Products C-Deck Screws Approved For Trex Decking

Screw ProductsC-Deck screws have been approved for use with Trex decking! Well, OK, maybe you’re not as excited as we are.

But we think that exclamation point is well-deserved because Screw Products and Trex are both high quality deck products that are great to work with–and they produce beautiful looking decks.

Camout, that frustrating sensation of a screwdriver slipping out of the screw head (yeah, you know what we’re talking about), is a thing of the past with Screw Products screws. These screws bite into the material, driving easily while preventing mushrooming.

And Trex is the country’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking, railing and fencing products. They have a well-deserved reputation of providing quality deck products that never crack, rot, or splinter.

So, when you combine these two products, you’re likely to end up with a beautiful deck that’s perfect for a quiet night of conversation and wine or a boisterous gathering with your family and friends.

We don’t stock Trex decking, but we’re definitely the place to go to for the C-Deck screws! If you are looking for screws for Trex decking, we have them in stock now at DIY Home Center.
