Trex Protect is a non-skid, self-adhesive deck flashing tape that is designed to shield the tops of joists, rim joists, beams and ledger board from moisture that can lead to the development of rot and wood decay and the loosening of deck screws and fasteners.
Trex Protect works on horizontal and vertical surfaces and is applied as a “cap” (vs. wrapping), which allows the wood to breathe. This butyl-based, self-adhesive tape is superior to asphalt-based joist tape and beam tape because it won’t bleed, dry out as quickly, or curl up and hold water. As a result, it acts as a moisture barrier between wood and galvanized metal commonly used in construction hardware.
Trex Protect Joist Tape and Beam Tape have a non-skid surface making it easier and safer to walk across during construction. Trex Protect is a simple and cost-effective solution to combating the damaging effects of both Mother Nature and Father Time.
TREX PROTECT EXTENDS THE LIFE OF YOUR DECK
Today’s high-performance composite deck boards, like those of Trex, are warranted to last 25 years. But, research shows that the deck substructure can begin to spilt, rot and decay in as little as 8-10 years.
To protect an average size deck measuring 7.2m x 3.6m will require approximately 5 rolls of Trex Protect Joist Tape. For less than a $200 investment, your deck substructure can last as long as the decking it supports.
TREX PROTECT PREVENTS MOISTURE PENETRATION
- Protects the top of the joist, rim joist, and ledger board from developing rot and wood decay
- Helps deck screws hold longer and stronger
- Acts as a barrier between wood and galvanized metal such as joist hangers
- Seals deck fasteners and prevents moisture penetration
- Eliminates splitting from freeze and thaw
- Provides a non-skid surface making it safer during installation
TREX PROTECT GUARDS AGAINST ROT AND WOOD DECAY
Trex Protect Joist Tape and Beam Tape seals deck fasteners and helps deck screws hold longer and stronger by preventing moisture penetration and defending against splitting that can result from seasonal freezing and thawing.
