Contractors can now offer an additional layer of protection with the new TAMKO TW Seam Tape used to close sheathing gaps on the roof deck and help keep water from entering the home.

The new TW Seam Tape is a flexible, self-adhering SBS-modified bitumen membrane with a polymer film on the surface and a removable treated release film on the adhesive side. It has a textured, skid-resistant surface for added safety of the roofing crew. TW Seam Tape is applied to all roof deck joints and seams after the roof deck installation, before the underlayment is applied

“In the chance shingles and underlayment are torn or blown off during high winds, TW Seam Tape provides added protection against water,” said Brandon Knobloch, TAMKO corporate director of waterproofing.

Unsealed roof deck seams are believed to be responsible for up to 60 percent of rain entering into an attic, according to the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety, TAMKO said.

“We’ll continue to give contractors what they need to get the job done with innovative applications of TAMKO’s Waterproofing products as part of our goal of delivering products and solutions that our customers rely on,” said Knobloch.

TW Seam Tape is designed for application on a variety of surfaces, including OSB, plywood and most other common roof deck materials. TW Seam Tape also works with all TAMKO shingles and underlayments.

Manufactured at TAMKO’s Columbus, Kan. facility, TW Seam Tape comes in 4-inch rolls, with each roll covering 61 linear feet.
