MFM BUILDING PRODUCTS creates its DeckWrap PowerBond to help extend the life of decking structural components and posts. The self-adhering, waterproofing membrane comes in three sizes for use with treated, untreated and synthetic wood types. Designed to self-seal around common decking fasteners for a waterproof bond, the membrane adheres to joist tops and edges, ledger boards and posts to prevent premature rot and the corro- sion of metal components.
