National Nail’s CAMO brand is adding an extra layer of protection for the deck substructure, with CAMO Joist + Ledger Deck Tape.
The self-adhesive butyl tape creates a waterproof membrane to protect wood deck framing against moisture, which can lead to rot. It self-seals around fasteners, blocking the pathway of water into wood. Apply the tape to the top of joists and ledger board, between joist hangers and ledger board, between rim joists and fascia, and between framing and joist hangers.
Securely bonding to wood framing, one 65 ft. roll covers approximately 75 sq. ft. of deck framing. The tape comes in three sizes: 1-5⁄8” wide for single joists to fully cover tops of 2x wood joists; 3-1⁄8” wide for use with double joists; and 6” wide for ledger and rim joists.
