YellaWood Joist Shield® Butyl Decking Tape
Add a barrier between your deck and moisture damage.
A beautiful deck can significantly enhance the value of a home. However, the framing structure underneath a deck can suffer moisture damage and rot, even while the deck surface itself appears undamaged. YellaWood Joist Shield® decking tape uses the latest butyl technology to help prolong the life of your deck by providing a layer of moisture protection on the tops of joists and beams.
ONE ROLL LASTS FOR YEARS
YellaWood Joist Shield® self-adhesive butyl tape provides a layer of moisture protection on the tops of deck joists and beams, prolonging the life of the entire structure. Butyl tape performs better at high temperatures than asphalt adhesives and won’t drip onto outdoor spaces or patios below the deck.
JOIST TAPE THAT’S WORTHY OF THE YELLA TAG
YellaWood Joist Shield® is a premium butyl deck flashing tape with a membrane designed for use on joists and beams. Made to meet the YellaWood® brand’s high standards, it is composed of a self-sealing butyl adhesive, laminated to a durable, UV-resistant, engineered film with a siliconized paper release sheet.
