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.
Step 1 - 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.
Step 2 - 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.
Step 3 - 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.
Step 4 - 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
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.
