In this article, we feature a deck built by Maine Deck Company to demonstrate how they used Imus Seal joist flashing tape and Imus Cap joist caps to flash the deck substructure. This 10’ x 12’ deck required 20 pieces of Imus Cap (1-5/8" x 95") and a roll of Imus Seal (4" x 50').
Deck-to-house attachment areas are a common place for water damage. To prevent problems caused by moisture, Maine Deck Brackets were used to create a space between the house and ledger. The Maine Deck Brackets were flashed with Imus Seal.
Garapa Gray DuraLife Decking was installed with Fastenator fasteners. The Fastenator system worked well with Imus Cap and the screws easily penetrated the 26 gauge bonderized metal without the need to pre-drill or use self-tapping decking screws as demonstrated in the video.
