Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape
I can now understand the need to wait during tightening.
I took my deck handrails off for refinishing/rebidding earlier this year. I reattached them while it was still starting to warm up. I tightened the bolts and as the weather warmed up, the butyl would ooze out more as it warmed up. I haven't seen any leaks since.
