An outdoor patio or deck is a great place to enjoy the fresh air of the outdoors and relax with family and friends. However, have you thought about that space underneath the deck? Many homes include a raised deck with an area underneath that lacks a ceiling. This often leaves the space below the deck unusable because of water infiltration issues. At Dry Patio Solutions, we are your underdeck ceiling installers in Denver, NC, and also in Charlotte and Mooresville, NC, enabling you to expand the use of your underdeck space.
Function of an Underdeck Ceiling System
With an underdeck ceiling system, you can upgrade that area under the deck that was once subject to becoming wet and damp into a dry, usable space, shielded from the elements. An underdeck ceiling functions like a gutter system in that it conveys water to the edge away from the patio or porch. Also, the underdeck system will only decrease the headroom by a small amount – around two inches.
With an underdeck ceiling installed, you effectively double the amount of outdoor living space provided by your deck. With this new space, you can catch a break from the hot sun, stay dry when it’s raining, or keep away from bugs if you have the area screened. These spaces may also be used for storage or for seating for guests during parties and get-togethers.
Our Underdeck Ceiling System
As a trusted provider among under deck ceiling contractors, we offer underdeck ceiling that gathers the water from the upper deck and channels it through a system to downspouts and away from the foundation of the home.
As rain falls through the spaces between the deck boards, it is captured in the interlocking panels of the ceiling panel system, which extend across the entire width of the deck. The water is transferred to the edges of the gutter system which directs the water and any debris it contains to strategically located downspouts. The underdeck ceiling system is protected from damage and the area under the deck is kept dry.
