Expert Trusted G-Tape

Feb 16, 2018 11:51:11 AM | Posted in Product Spotlights By Jaclyn Kueny

Even the Experts Trust G-Tape

Completely protect and seal your new deck from water rot and mold with G-Tape Acrylic Flashing Tape. G-Tape is waterproof and weather-resistant to give your joists, windows and doors coverage in any climate. G-Tape withstands extreme weather conditions without any cracking or strength loss. It is available in a wide variety of sizes to shield anything from stringers to double or triple beams, even EPDM roofing.

G-Tape is even tearable by hand and repositionable. While most tapes crinkle, stick to themselves, and leave sticky residue, G-Tape doesn’t stick to itself and easily releases contact with no adhesion loss, improving speed and productivity while also keeping costs low. It creates a permanent bond after 24 hours and is manufacturer tested for a 50 year span. Work smarter, not harder with the most high performing tape on the market.

Hear from the professionals

Even professional deck builders trust G-Tape for many of their projects. We asked one of our favorite local builders, Tim from Phi Decks, why he loves G-Tape:

  • “G-Tape is really useful when we need to add a little extra water protection to our framing members when we have multi-ply beams, we’ll install G-Tape across the top of them so that it’ll stop water intrusion into those beams and to prevent future rot. A lot of flashing tapes are butyl based which really only works when it’s above 60 or 70 degrees and the sun is out. They don’t stick very well in the cold for sure. G-Tape always sticks in the cold, really no matter what the temperature is, G-Tape will stick to whatever we’re putting it on.”

 

G-Tape is not sold in most hardware stores, but is always in stock and ready to ship to you same day only at Decks Direct.com. At any point in your project, even if you have just a few simple questions, feel free to give our deck experts a call at 1-888-824-5316 or send us an email at support@decksdirect.com.

Glass Railing System Options

Through the Looking Glass

Glass railing systems allow for a great view with a modern, upscale look that is sure to impress. Ideal for both residential as well as commercial projects.

DecksDirect offers two types of solutions for glass railing shoppers. These two types can be thought of as one-stop-shop and just-add-glass systems. One-stop-shop systems come complete with pre-cut glass panels. Just-add-glass systems require you to source glass locally from a qualified glass professional.

 

 One-Stop-Shop Glass Railing Options

InvisiRail Glass Railing

For ultimate convenience, DecksDirect offers the InvisiRail Glass Railing System. Order the entire rail system all in one place for delivery to your home or jobsite; there's no need to source glass elsewhere. The system features thin posts and brackets, which are hardly noticeable. For customization, brackets can install into wood posts. Either way, your view will take center stage with InvisiRail framing the deck.

InvisiRail Glass Panels are available in many sizes to accommodate your unique deck layout. At 38.5" high, panels build a 42" rail using InvisiPosts or wood posts. The special design of InvisiRail's panels includes holes for the top brackets and slots for the bottom brackets. The glass is strong and durable, having undergone tempering, heat soaking, and beveling. All panels are 10mm thick, and feature safety corners that won't harm children or pets.

Multi-level deck featuring Westburry Veranda Glass Railing SystemWestbury Veranda Glass Railing System

Westbury's Veranda style of aluminum railing utilizes glass panel infill to allow your view to shine through unimpeded. Powder-coated aluminum with a fine-grain texture is a high-end detail you won't find in many other railing lines, and it forms a sturdy framework for tempered glass panels. Note: DecksDirect.com does not offer glass panels for this system. 1/4" thick panels must be sourced locally.

Westbury's beautiful line of high-quality aluminum railing is now available for building an outstanding glass rail system. Reveal the view beyond the deck by combining tempered glass panels (not sold by DecksDirect.com) with the two-rail design of the Veranda system. Four sturdy level brackets are included with each set of rails, which can be used to build a 36" rail or 42" rail. The three textured finishes look great with clear or tinted glass, and pair nicely with rail sections of other Westbury railing lines for areas that may not need an unobstructed view.

Glass panels (use 1/4" thick tempered glass) install securely inside EPDM rubber gaskets, which is the same type of rubber used for automotive windshields. The gaskets run the length of the top and bottom rail for a secure connection, and allowing 2-7/8" of open space on both ends of the glass panel when installing allows for air flow. To install glass rails on an angle or for stair sections, simply purchase the appropriate bracket sets.

Lakeside installation of Century Aluminum Scenic Railing SystemCentury Aluminum - Scenic Glass Railing System

Century Aluminum Products offers the innovative Scenic Glass Railing system which is comprised of only powder-coated steel posts and large glass panels, making for a spectacular view with little maintenance needed. There is no need for top or bottom rails; grooved channels on the posts allow 10mm glass panels to slide in with ease.

Century Aluminum Products offer quality without the need to sacrifice your view, with posts available in white or textured black. Glass panels sold separately.

Without connectors or adapters, Scenic Posts by Century Aluminum Railings make installing a beautiful glass railing system simpler than competitors. The integrated glass channel built into Scenic Posts allows the glass to slide securely into place without additional parts or pieces. The design of the channel allows for angles from 0 to 22.5 degrees using the End Post, 0 to 45 degrees using the Line Post, and from 90 to 135 degrees using the Corner Post. Wall posts and end posts have one channel, line posts have two channels to secure glass on opposite sides, and corner posts have channels on two adjacent sides. This system is secure without a top or bottom horizontal rail, so all you'll see is your view!

These posts are available in a 39-1/2 inch and 45-1/2 inch heights and three powder-coated finishes, Gloss Black, Gloss White, and Black Sand. Each AL13 aluminum post purchase includes the post, one post base cover, and one base plate barrier (placed between post base and deck surface)

 

 

 

Step 2 - Post Cap

Flat Pyramid Post Cap by Fortress AccentsStep 2 is where you will make a decision on what style of post cap you want to use. In order to stay within the Fortress line of products, DecksDirect offers the Flat Pyramid Post Cap by Fortress Accents and the AL13 Aluminum Post Cap by Fortress. Both of these post caps are available in the same color finishes as the rest of the Fortress AL13 products and will also fit the 3 x 3 inch AL13 aluminum post. Both of these post caps include two set screws and an allen wrench for installation. DecksDirect also has a wide variety of post caps in different material types in both lit and unlit varieties, so definitely feel free to go with something completely your own as well.

 

 

Step 3 - AL13 Traditional Prefabricated Aluminum Panels

Both level and stair railings are available in gloss black, gloss white, and black sand with rail height choices of 34-inches or 40-inches. With level railing, you have the choice of 6-foot or 8-foot railing lengths (nominal - on center measurements) but with stair railing, you only have the option for 8-foot sections.

Each pack includes the four brackets, eight 2-1/2-inch wood screws, and twelve 3/4-inch thread cutting metal screws.

This would make your total installed railing height 42-1/2 inches (This includes a 3-1/2 inch space between deck surface and bottom edge of bottom rail).
