Rot Shield Joist Tape
The deck is an extension of a home, a space to entertain, dine, lounge and relax. All great reasons to make sure the deck is done right! When properly installed, Rot Shield Joist Tape protects a deck from damage caused by water which can accumulate under deck boards. Moisture can create an environment where mildew, mold and fungus thrive. Protect your investment from these threats by incorporating Rot Shield Joist Tape into your project as a barrier between the ledger board, joists and deck boards.
Guidelines are 1 ¼” from each edge for smoother, cleaner installation, higher quality appearance, fewer adjustments, and fewer wrinkles. We recommended 1” overlap at seams for best installation. Incorporating Rot Shield Improves the durability of deck structures and enhances longevity of deck. Rot Shield seals around fasteners preventing water intrusion and is UV stable, so can be left exposed for up to 120 days.
