butyl tape

I like butyl tape for many applications but believe the correct and best way to deal with the fasteners if the core is dry is to drill them out oversized, fill with apoyy like west system etc, then re-drill and install screws. If leaks around screws were to happen (definate posibility on flexing deck) any water would not be able to migrate / wick into core.
