Why You Need Under-Deck Drainage System

Posted on: October 28, 2020

An under-deck drainage system will keep the space dry and usable. It will also prevent it from rotting or decaying. The best way to install a drainage system is above the joists, but you could also have it installed below the joists. Installing the drainage system above the joists will prevent all moisture from penetrating the beams and joists. It’s also known to keep the screws in place for longer. Looking for a deck builder in Glen Burnie to install an under deck drainage system with your new deck? Diamonds Decks has you covered!

The Benefits of Installing A Deck Drainage System

The benefits of installing an under deck draining system include increased living space and storage space. By diverting water and creating a “deck ceiling,” the space below your deck will become usable living space. You could use this as an entertaining space or as a space to enjoy your garden and not be subject to the elements.

By increasing living space you can also add value to your space. You can customize them to complement your deck, patio, and landscaping décor, as it comes in a variety of styles. Consider adding ceiling fans and an entertainment center, for example.

If you have a lower deck, adding a deck drainage system can make your under-deck space great usable storage space. By diverting the water, it keeps the space safe to store tools, equipment, or children’s toys. Consider storing tables and chairs here rather than in your garage when the cold weather approaches. This additional storage also helps add value to your space. Lastly, not only does an under deck drainage system free up space and provide you with more living space, but it protects the entirety of your home. Foundation damage occurs when too much water pools along the sides of the home. Just as gutters and drainage spouts carry water away from the home, the under deck drainage system does the same for the deck.
