I don't do a lot of decks, but I occasionally put up the frame when doing covered decks. This one has an 8X12 steel beam for support. I put 12" flashing tape on top. My question is how to finish off the tape edges. I'm wrapping the beam with Smart siding. How do you treat the tape edge?

So a little of the tape is exposed then? Yours was the one I thought of.

I use Vycor deck tape for my beams as well. I bring the tape just about 1/2" over the sides just enough to shed water. It's not very noticeable. I usually paint it out. But this is a different climate and we're very dry here with very little moisture to worry about.
