Welcome to our all new Rot-Not Deck Protection
System...a joist and pier cap system designed to
protect and lengthen the life of your deck.
It works like an umbrella to keep the joists and
undersides of the deck planks clean and dry.
Rot-Not protects critical areas of joist and
deck plank which liquid sealers never reach.
Using the Rot-Not joist and pier cap system
eliminates the most common cause of deck
failure, the rot migration between the joist and
underside of the deck plank. It eliminates
- The surface is crowned to allow water to
run off and away from the deck joist/deck
- Rot-Not's unique patented design
provides 50% more air circulation to the
underside of the deck plank, while
eliminating 100% water penetration on the
topside of the joist.
- Air vents on the top and sides of the
Rot-Not joist and pier caps provide
additional air circulation around the joist,
allowing the wood to breathe.
- Rot-Not joist cap is designed to work
with all natural wood and composite deck
- Rot-Not joist and pier caps are
manufactured using a quality UV protected
material that is self-sealing during the
fastener installation process.
What Product or system can protect the value
and longevity of your deck better than ROT NOT®
As a homeowner or deck builder, you must
consider the longevity of your deck to protect
your investment, as well as your reputation as a
For the longest time, decks were constructed
using matured lumber (B) and treated with CCA
(Chromate Copper Arsenate). Due to
environmental issues with CCA, and introduction
of ACQ (Alkaline Copper Quat) lumber (A), new
concerns have surfaced.
Market demands have created genetically modified
lumber, which promotes faster, larger growth.
This quick-growth forest product looses fibre
strength and density. The growth rings are
spread further apart allowing more pulp-like
material between the growth rings.
The replacement of CAA with ACQ has raised
concerns regarding the accelerated rate of
deterioration of the deck fasteners. With
the chemical treatment changes and lumber supply
throughout the wood industry, the overall
performance of your deck has become vulnerable
and unproven. No other single product or
system can protect the integrity and overall
performance of your deck better than ROT-NOT®
In most cases, ROT-NOT® DECK PROTECTION SYSTEM®
will double the life expectancy of your deck.
Chemical sealers designed to stop moisture
penetration, do little to address the issues in
critical wood-to-wood locations.
Using 100% reground PVC plastic, the
manufacturing process of ROT-NOT® DECK
PROTECTION SYSTEM® is environmentally friendly.
Without a doubt, choosing ROT-NOT® DECK
PROTECTION SYSTEM® will provide reassurance that
your deck will remain protected year after year
-- hence why we say...
Some things in life are simply...NO BRAINERS
