Congratulations to Barton from Washington for winning our Deck of the Month contest for July! He built his deck with a wide range of products from DecksDirect. From the Grace Vycor Self-Adhering Flashing Tape to protect his joists and the Camo Hidden Fasteners to install his deck boards, to the Deckorators Round Aluminum Balusters and the OZCO accents, his new outdoor space is truly a DecksDirect deck!

Here's what Barton had to say about his project:

"When we purchased our current home, our first priority was to update the interior, knowing full well the deck was going to need serious repair and/or replacing. Fast-forward 2 years, and this summer it as finally time to tackle the deck.

While I consider myself an avid DIYer, I'm not a professional, and frankly the deck rebuild was something I was just a little intimidated with. So to compromise, I had a professional deck builder complete the necessary framing portion while I took the project to completion doing all the deck boards, railing, and other visual details. In other words, if you can see it, I did it! Before starting the project, I gathered as many sources as possible, and discovering your site and retail solutions via DecksDirect was immeasurable.

With DeckDirect's help, I was able to make my vision for the new deck a reality. From the Vycor Flashing Tape to protect the new joists, Camo Fasteners for a clean finish, and the OZCO accessories, I was thrilled to be able to go to one place for my decking needs and have those items delivered directly to me.

One area of the deck I was not looking forward to was completing the railing and attaching the balusters, but the Uni-ball Connectors, Deckorators Rail Connectors, and DecksDirect how-to guides made that process much simpler and the rails look great!

Thanks DecksDirect for all your help!"

Zip-Up UnderDeck Deck Drainage System

Zip-Up UnderDeck Deck Drainage System

Finish the underside of your deck by using Zip-Up Underdeck. These ceilings provide dry useable living space underneath your deck without sacrificing headroom. Easy to install, the Zip-Up Underdeck components are mold resistant, washable, and paintable.

The lightweight Zip-Up Components install with common tools to make a watertight seal and create a finished ceiling beneath any new or existing deck.

The Basics


 

Step 1 - UnderDeck Pitch Rail by Zip-Up

UnderDeck Pitch Rail by Zip-Up

The UnderDeck Pitch Rail by Zip-Up creates the foundation of the entire Zip-Up system. These rails form the pitch that directs water away from your home. The system works by creating a 1/8" slope per foot. These dense PVC Pitch Rails will provide ultimate stability without risk of rot. Pitch Rails can be stacked to create the desired angle.

Shop Zip-Up Pitch Rails

 

 

 

Step 2 - UnderDeck Wall Trim By Zip-Up

UnderDeck Wall Trim By Zip-Up

Once the Zip-Up UnderDeck Pitch Rails are installed, the next step is to attach Wall Trim to the ledger board and the outside rim joists. The Wall Trim follows the slope of the Pitch Rails that attach with standard deck screws every 12 inches.

Shop UnderDeck Wall Trim By Zip-Up

 

 

 

Step 3 - UnderDeck Main Rail By Zip-Up

UnderDeck Main Rail By Zip-Up

The Zip-Up Underdeck Main Rails are a crucial part to creating a watertight ceiling system. The rails are made out of PVC and come in both 12 foot and 16 foot lengths. The Main Rails attach to the Pitch Rails with standard deck screws and have a specially-designed channel that creates a watertight seal with the Zip-Up Panels.

Shop UnderDeck Main Rail By Zip-Up

 

 

 

Step 4 - UnderDeck Panel By Zip-Up

UnderDeck Panel By Zip-Up

The UnderDeck Panel By Zip-Up snaps securely in place with the Main Rail to form a watertight seal and channel water through the Zip-Up UnderDeck System. The panel finishes are serrated or pebble, both of which deflect light without being glossy, and can be painted. The panels can be easily removed and replaced if needed.

Optional - UnderDeck Seam Trim By Zip-Up

UnderDeck Seam Trim By Zip-Up

For a deck deeper than 16 feet, using UnderDeck Seam Trim By Zip-Up provides a cap at the end of Main Rails and Panels, and allows for another section to be installed. This item is only needed if the deck depth exceeds 16 feet.
