What is one of the biggest problems with timber decks?
What can cost you loads of money to fix after just a few years?
Deck frame rot.
That’s right, many deck frames rot to nothing after just 5, 10 years.
Moisture gets in, the weather batters it and the frame is destroyed.
And there’s only one way to fix this – by completely renewing it. Which is expensive.
But you can protect your deck frame and bin this problem.
By covering your frame with quality deck tape. And we have Walther Strong deck tape in stock now.
Why you should buy decking tape and how to apply it
You can put quality deck tape on new and existing timber deck frames – it fully protects both, giving a waterproof and weathertight seal.
Quality decking tape has these benefits:
- It’s easy to tear and won’t get stuck to itself
- You don’t need gloves to apply it
- The tape adhesive is strong – it’ll last for 50 years
- It self-seals around fasteners (no annoying fiddly bits)
- Long-term exposure to sunshine won’t damage it
- It works on damp timber and below freezing (so you can apply it any time)
Applying deck tape will help your frame last longer. This means that you spend less on maintenance and repairs and that you can enjoy your deck for longer.
