Why Use Deck Protection Tape?

Why Use Deck Protection Tape?
Building a deck is an investment. Most decks are warranted to last about 25 years, but the timber substructure often starts to rot at about 8-10 years. You can prevent the joists and bearers from decaying by applying a butyl-based deck protection tape.

Why Use a Butyl Joist and Bearer Protection Tape?
The benefits of a butyl-based tape is that it protects the timber foundation from moisture for the life of the deck. Since an acrylic-based tape is not a sealant, it does not protect the timber from water that enters through a screw hole. Exposure to sunlight through the deck boards also degrades the acrylic adhesive.
