DeckWrap PowerBond® Waterproofing System

DeckWrap PowerBond® is a waterproofing system with a self-adhering membrane which protects wood surfaces. The patented PowerBond™ asphalt adhesive self-seals around screws and nails, as well as punctures and other fasteners, thus protecting the wood from the long-term effects of water.

Most decks use wood framing. It’s affordable and usually easy to source. However, wood will degrade over time. You can help improve the longevity of the lumber by protecting it with DeckWrap products to cover the tops and ends of joists, beams, and ledgers, as well as posts that are buried in the ground.

DeckWrap PowerBond® comes in shrink-wrapped rolls with instructions for retail display. Roll sizes available are 3″, 6″ by 75′ length, and 12″ widths by 25′ length.

DeckWrap Joist and Beam Protector

DeckWrap PowerBond® Features:

  • The adhesive stays put in temperatures as low as 25°F (-4°C)

  • Rot mitigation for wooden supports and posts

  • Can be used with treated, untreated or synthetic products like composites
  • Increases deck and post life

For Deck Installations: Use PowerBond® as flashing on top of the ledger board, and on top of joists before laying down decking.

For ACQ-Treated Lumber: The 12” PowerBond® as a barrier between ACQ-treated lumber and metal components, such as hangers and other brackets, to help them avoid premature corrosion.

For In-Ground Posts: Wood can degrade if fungal growth from contact with affected soil or concrete. Rot can frequently occur up to six inches below grade. Because fungal growth requires oxygen and moisture to thrive, the product acts as a barrier between the wet soil and the post. Use 12” PowerBond® to protect posts.
