Why You Should Install An Underdeck System

Perhaps you’ve heard of an underdeck system, but you’re not sure why you’d need one. Or maybe you know what it is, but aren’t sure if it’s appropriate for you. This guide will answer any doubts you may have.

What Is An Underdeck System?

An underdeck system is installed beneath the deck boards of a second-story deck. The space beneath is dry and functional thanks to the use of a network of troughs and downspouts, which divert water away from the deck and into a gutter system.

Why Would I Want One?

A drainage system under a second-story deck allows you to double the amount of outdoor living space on your property. You can add a ceiling and utilities for lights, fans, TVs, outdoor kitchens, storage area, and more once the drainage system is in place.

What About Maintenance?

It is simple to keep your underdeck system in good working order. Clean the gutters on a regular basis if there are a lot of trees over the deck in your home. A hose and a broom are all that is needed to clean the gutter. To prevent build-up in the deck gutter system, consider including an access panel.

If you’re making a two-story deck, make sure it has an underdeck drainage system. You’ll be over the moon with all of the many ways you’ll have to enjoy your new, dry outdoor area.
