Under Deck Dri-Systems
When you have a deck, it’s just a fact of life that it’ll get rained on. Just like any other part of your house, you need a way for the rainwater to get diverted safely off the deck. If you don’t have a good drainage system, there’s a lot that can go wrong. For example, if the water pools up on the deck, it can cause accidents for anyone who steps out on the deck. Likewise, it can cause damage to your deck. Mold, rot, insect damage; you name it. It’s for that reason that a good drainage system is important.
Under-Deck Drainage Systems in Georgia
At Tailor Decks, we prefer and recommend under-deck dri-systems,
or sometimes also called under-deck drainage systems. One of the best things about these is that they’re highly effective, but also very discreet. It also doesn’t matter what sort of deck you have, these can be added to any style of deck without affecting the appearance or functionality of your deck.
One of the best things about installing an under deck dri-system during the construction of your brand new deck, is that it opens up a whole new world of possibilities. The area underneath your deck that would otherwise be unusable, can be transformed into a luxurious and comfortable porch or living space thanks in part to the under deck dri-system.
Just one example from an endless array of possibilities: Underneath your deck, you can have a porch fully furnished with a ceiling fan, TV, lighting fixtures, a fireplace, and a bar. Add glass doors into the mix, and you have a space where you can host guests or relax on long weekend all year long
The best thing about using the under deck dri-system is that it’s more budget friendly, and way more cost effective to build a porch like the one described above underneath the deck, rather than on top of it. To put it simply; you get double the space for half the price.
