The ORIGINAL, self-stick protective wrap that provides EXTREME Elemental Protection!!! This product is designed to add years of life to your deck. Suitable for use on treated, untreated, and synthetic wood products.
Why is applying DECKWRAP so important? ACQ Treated Lumber holds up to the elements extraordinarily well. Because its impregnated with chemicals that are highly volatile to both metal and humans, if left unabated, the chemical reaction to joist hangers, nails and screws will cause metal to break down and further cause premature structural breakdown of your deck. In addition, the application of DECKWRAP also helps resist, retard and prevent the attack of damaging fungi that may already exist in your treated lumber.
"Fungi that inhabit untreated wood affect the consistency of wood products produced by treating facilities. Depending on the type of fungi involved, infected wood may suffer from under-treatment, over-treatment, or uneven treatment; fungal contamination may also cause preservative bleeding or loss of strength.
The manufacturers of alternative wood products, who also strive for consistency among the units they produce, are quick to point to the variability of treated wood. Variability among treated wood products cannot be eliminated, but if treating companies understand how fungi can affect untreated white-wood, it can be minimized."
