Why Having a Proper Deck Drainage System Matters

The Different Types of Deck Drainage Systems

Under Deck Ceilings Drainage

Under deck ceiling systems are installed beneath the deck joists, creating a dry, usable space below the deck. It typically includes channels to direct water away from the deck and downspouts for drainage.

Deck Drainage Troughs

Deck drainage troughs are installed between the deck joists, providing a channel for water to flow away from the deck’s surface. These troughs are typically made of durable materials such as vinyl and are designed to withstand the elements while effectively managing water runoff.

How do you pick the best drainage system for your new deck?

Both above and below the joist are viable locations for installing deck drainage systems. This distinction in wood and rot defense is important.

Under- joist systems produce a completed ceiling,improving the appearance and feel of the underdeck area.

However wood rot can be brought on by below joist drainage systems in three different ways:

They first let rainwater drip through the deck boards, over the joists and into the drainage system below, constantly wetting the wood. The joists get wet before the water even hits the pan and goes out.

Second, a system that is below the joists can retain moisture. Whether you have wood or composite decking boards, there wont be enough ventilation to dry the wood.

Lastly, during the warmer summer months,high temperatures can cook trapped moist wood and accelerate the rotting.

The ideal solution is to install a deck drainage system above the joists because of this. This kind of solution will completely shield all the joists and beams from moisture.

In addition to keeping water from entering the area below, above joist systems also shield the decks structure from moisture, extending the decks lifespan.
