About This Product

Protect your deck substructure and extend the life of your deck with Protective Joist Tape. When applied to deck joists, Protective Joist Tape creates a waterproof membrane that prevents wood rot and decay caused by the accumulation of moisture under the deck boards. Protective Joist Tape self-seals around screws and nails, blocking the primary pathway of water into lumber. When placed between treated lumber and metal, Protective Joist Tape eliminates the potential for the corrosion of the metal surface.

Q:Can I use this tape to adhere the plastic vapor barrier to the cinder block wall in a crawl space?
by|Nov 9, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Rich, we have not tested this joist tape for installation methods other than for decking. Therefore, we cannot provide any recommendations for alternative installation methods. If you still wish to proceed with this installation method, we suggest consulting your local code to verify if it is allowed in your area.

    A:  Jeff, this tape is specifically designed to help with decking joists by providing a waterproof membrane that effectively prevents wood rot and decay. It's important to note that we have not conducted any tests on this tape with other types of products. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the results if it is used on this trellis.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Leed, this Butyl Joist Tape is approximately 20-22 mils thick not counting the release paper. The variation comes from the texture or "grit" that is on the facer.

          I only discovered this product recently and now plan to use it on all future deck repairs. Strong adhesive -- looks like it should help my deck last longer as rotting joists are a common problem.

          I was very happy with this tape. We did our best to clean off the old joists but they were still pretty crusty in some spots. I had no issues with the tape adhering to the joists. Also, I didn’t have any issues with the tape sticking to itself, which is often a problem.

          Difficult packaging and application
          Once the package and backing have been removed it seems to stick and do the job, the problem is getting it out of the packaging as everything stuck to the side of the rolls so bad. While trying to apply the tape, the backing wouldn’t come off clean and would rip about every 6-8”. It took us over 2.5 hours to apply 7 rolls of tape to our deck frame. I’m sure there are better products available and if they are more expensive probably worth saving the time. How much is your time worth?

            Works in freezing weather, easy to peel.
            I have used 3 different butyl tapes (1 from an online store, and 2 from big box stores). This has been the easiest to peel off the backing, and the backing tears easily without needed a razor. I applied it at 32 deg. F, and it stuck very well. I was able to stick a little down and then pull the roll with one hand and align the tape with the other all while it remained stuck where I first applied it. You only have seconds to separate it if the sticky side touches itself. Super strong tape.
