Trex Protect Extends the Life of Your Deck
Today’s high-performance composite deck boards, like those of Trex, are warranted to last 25 years. But, research shows that the deck substructure can begin to spilt, rot and decay in as little as 8-10 years.
To protect an average size deck measuring 12’ x 24’ will require approximately 5 rolls of Trex Protect Joist Tape and one roll of Trex Protect Beam Tape. For less than a $100 investment, your deck substructure can last as long as the decking it supports.
