Best Under Deck System For You

Imagine sitting out on your backyard deck, soaking in the sunshine, with several family and friends relaxing around in your outdoor space. All of a sudden you feel a few droplets reach the top of your head. Is the sprinkler on? Are the kids having a water balloon fight in the backyard?

As you look up to the skies, you see the dark clouds roll in for an afternoon rain shower. Does the party end?! Does everyone have to go home? No, let the good times continue!

Instead gather and keep dry in your lower level patio space thanks to the innovation of under deck systems! Under Deck drainage systems divert water away from the surface and out into gutters along the edge of the upper-level deck. You install Under Deck drainage systems between or below deck joists to prevent any rainwater or debris from falling between the deck boards and to the ground below.

If at any point in your under deck drainage system project you have any questions, feel free to give our deck experts a call at 1-888-824-5316 or send us an email at hello@decksdirect.com.
