The Deck Protector From Lounsbury Products
Extend the life of your deck with a deck joist protection system from Lounsbury Products. Our system helps to protect your deck by preventing water from potentially ruining the underlying beams. The Deck Protector acts as a gutter to redirect the water so that it does not sit on fasteners, nails, and floor joists, causing rot and other deck problems.
About the Deck Protector – just sealing your deck isn’t enough!
Based on a unique patent-pending design, the Deck Protector helps to extend the lifetime of your deck by preventing water damage to the structure of your deck. The narrow spaces between decking boards retain water and debris, causing rot which will later need deck joist repair. The Deck Protector, made from resilient polycarbonate (the same material used in high-end corrugated roofing) is inserted into these spaces and will stay in place through wind, rain, snow and the natural movement of your deck. Like a miniature gutter, the Deck Protector covers underlying beams, diverting water away from the fasteners, nails and the wood floor joists. The Deck Protector comes in clear translucent polycarbonate that blends in with the finish of your deck becoming almost invisible. The Deck protector comes in various lengths to cover the support beams of your deck from the Standard 2 inch Deck Protector to the Custom length Deck Protectors for larger or doubled joists all the way up to the 48 inch Convenience Strip.
To determine if our patent-pending product will work on your deck, place a nickel between the boards. If it fits but the gap is not more than 5/8 inch, our system will work. Cover every exposed floor joist for best results. Manufactured in the United States. For installations where deck boards are too close we offer our Saw Base Guide.
