DECK2WALL SPACERS Prevent rot at deck ledgers with Deck2wall Spacers. Deck ledger designs must incorporate water-management practices, because preventing rot at ledger connections is critical to maintaining a safe deck. Deck2wall Spacers provide a space between the deck ledger and house, allowing water and debris to flow through which promotes circulation and drying. Compare this method to typical flashing details that can trap water and debris between the first deck board and the house. The Deck2wall
Spacers work like stacked washers but are noncorro- sive, easier to waterproof, and have a larger diameter for better load distribution. They make stronger con- nections, tested with bolts and lags, and are much easier to install. Made in the USA, these polypropy- lene spacers are available in two sizes and they also work well on many other applications including shade structures and posts.

E-Z GUTTER GUARDS E-Z Gutter has developed a series of three distinctly different gutter guards all engineered for fast installa- tion—with no fasteners needed. They’re all designed to allow rainwater to rush though while keeping debris out of the gutters, and to stay put during rough weath- er but snap out for maintenance. E-Z Quick is made of durable, expanded aluminum, with a tight mesh that is engineered to keep debris out while letting rainwa- ter rush through. E-Z Zip is a heavy-duty mesh, made of powder-coated expanded steel. The top of the line is E-Z Shield, which is built out of heavy-duty painted aluminum with reverse louvers allowing water to rush through, while keeping the maximum debris out. The
black color blends into the roofline and heats up fast in the winter months to melt ice and snow. All three products install by placing the back of the screen on the gutter hangers, and pushing the front of screen back and down until it locks into the gutter. They are designed for 5-in. gutters. Each section is 4 feet long and notched for 3/4-in. in overlap. When installed, each box will cover 98.5 ft. Visit www.e-zgutter.com or booth 1045.
