Under Deck Drainage Systems

Water drainage systems allow you to comfortably use the space under a high deck. These systems divert water away to create a dry space below. You can essentially double the outdoor living area for an affordable price. These areas can be easily converted into screen porches by adding screen walls.

Water drainage systems installation varies by manufacturer. Some systems are composed of waterproof membrane installed over the deck on a subfloor. Some may be a decking product that sheds away water. Other systems are attached to the bottom of the deck frame. Always consider the method of installation when researching water drainage systems.
