We started using G-Tape a few months ago and have found that it works for almost any application. We use it to keep the joists protected from water damage at the screw penetration points. G-Tape is pressure-sensitive, can be torn by hand. and leaves little or no residue on the surface.
It can even be removed from itself and re-used (unlike standard duct tape) and doesn't leave any residue on your hands like conventional tape. It just makes a great flashing in almost any environment.
On this project we also used the Bostich Strapshot Nailer on the joist hangers. There's no telling how many fingertips have been saved by the use of that gun.
