Is Imus Seal compatible with my deck surface material?
Yes, Imus Seal works with naturally durable wood (e.g. redwood, cedar), pressure treated timber (e.g. southern yellow pine), exotic tropical hardwoods (e.g. ipe, teak, tigerwood), thermally modified wood, wood plastic composite (e.g. Trex, Monarch, TimberTech, Veranda), or plastic (e.g. polystyrene, PVC).
How is water kept from entering the joists where the deck fastening screws penetrate the tape?
The self-adhered butyl rubber flashing membrane seals around fasteners.
Can Imus Seal be used to protect wood structures other than decks from rot?
Yes, Imus Seal can be used on stair stringers, trellises, pergolas, exposed exterior beams, boat docks, and more. Imus Seal can also be applied to ledger boards and used to wrap deck posts.
Can I calculate how many lineal feet of Imus Seal my deck needs?
Yes, you can calculate your deck square footage and estimate how much Imus Seal it will need with the Deck Size and Protection Calculator.
Recently I installed joist covers on a small deck. They work well. I will use them when I rebuild my much larger deck.
Really works as described.
Fantastic stuff! Our 15-year old cedar deck was constructed using pressurized lumber as the sub structure. We are replacing the top with TREX Enhance decking. We decided to flash the 2 x 8's and the 2 x 10's with Imus flashing. It has an extreme adhesive backing which makes it adhere to the 15-year old boards covering all nail and screw holes. It rained for three days straight after we installed the flashing - before we could install the new TREX - and the joists of the structure stayed dry. Highly recommend and definitely a five-star rating! So glad we made this decision. . .
