Your deck is an extension of your home, a space for you to entertain, dine, lounge and relax. All great reasons to make sure your deck is done right!
When properly installed, Rot Shield Joist Tape protects you and your deck from damage caused by water which can accumulate under deck boards. Moisture can create an environment where mildew, mold and fungus thrive.
