IKO® has introduced GoldSeam™, a multipurpose roof tape. The product can be used in a variety of deck protection applications, including as a seam tape for the roof deck; a sealant for critical roof joints, such as small gaps around the eave and fascia; as well as around roof structures, such as skylights, chimneys, plumbing vents, or ventilation caps. Designed to prevent ice and water infiltration as well as rodent and insect infestation, IKO GoldSeam is ideally suited to seal the joints of oriented strand board or plywood roof deck panels when used in conjunction with an IKO underlayment.
Whether it’s roof deck or eave sealing, IKO GoldSeam provides the critical protection homeowners need to help prevent water infiltration inside their homes. Leading industry experts know that the gap between the fascia and roof deck is the most vulnerable area of the roof, and for far too long, has been the most overlooked detail in roof installation. IKO established an innovative solution with GoldSeam to effectively seal that gap and bring homeowners peace of mind. IKO GoldSeam pairs perfectly with IKO’s Nordic™ and Dynasty® performance shingles to provide protection for the entire roof system against blow-off and damage during extreme weather.
IKO GoldSeam is a specialized product that was designed to facilitate compliance with building codes requiring complete deck protection. Compliance with these regulations, which are particularly prevalent in areas where high winds are common, can usually be achieved by covering deck-panel joints with IKO GoldSeam in conjunction with a subsequent layer of synthetic underlayment, such as IKO Stormtite™ or RoofGard-Cool Grey™. Prior to installation, applicable building codes should always be consulted, and all projects should be built in compliance with such codes.
