Discover RESISTO DECK TAPE
As of January 1, 2021, the revised Secondary Water Barrier Section of the 7th edition of the Florida Building Code states that underlayment for asphalt shingles, metal roof shingles, mineral-surfaced roll roofing, slate and slate-type shingles, tiles, and metal roof panels shall comply with one of the following three methods of installation.
Code-Approved Methods for the Installation of the Underlayment 
Using an approved self-adhesive polymer-modified bitumen underlayment complying with ASTM D1970 over the entire roof deck.
Using a minimum four-inch-wide tape of self-adhesive modified bitumen membrane over all joints of the roof deck and then covering the entire roof with an ASTM approved underlayment.
Installing two layers of ASTM D226 Type II or two layers of synthetic underlayment with an approved product complying with ASTM D226.
RESISTO DECK TAPE is a 43 mils (1.1 mm) self-adhesive modified bitumen tape that is approved by the FBC to be applied over roof deck joints as per Installation Method No. 2 presented above. The underface is composed of a silicone release paper. It provides an air and vapor seal to the roof deck seams and other construction details.
