Customers love it when what you build lasts and adds value to their lives and homes. One of the best ways to ensure you build a deck that will last for at least 20 years is to use a high-quality deck protection tape that shields the joists and bearers from moisture.
Here’s a quick rundown of three reasons you want to use a high-quality deck protection tape on your next project:
- Protect against the elements. Water is timber’s worst enemy. Educate your customers about the importance of protecting their deck’s foundation from moisture that causes decay. Peel-and-stick deck protection tape, such as Trex Protect, allows the timber to breathe. When the tape is applied directly on top of the joists and bearers it acts as a cap and protects the screw holes from moisture penetration.Using deck protection tape will help your customers have a deck foundation that lasts as long as the deck itself.
- Maximise their money.When you use deck protection tape, you’re saving your customers from potentially replacing all or part of their deck ten years down the road. For a very affordable add-on cost, you’re ensuring they won’t have to completely rebuild their deck prematurely. A deck with a rotten substructure is also a safety hazard, so by protecting from moisture, you’re saving your customers from a potential unexpected collapse due to timber rot and decay.
- Guarantee their investment. Typically, the composite boards you use to build a deck are warranted to last for about 25 years. Trex Protect gives your customers a 20-year warranty on the joists and bearers, giving them more peace of mind about the quality of their deck.
