Commercial decks create a dynamic, expansive recreational space for many different kinds of businesses, from restaurants to hotels to apartment complexes, and beyond.
All of these raised spaces can benefit significantly from deck drainage systems that pave the way for dry, functional space below.
Here are just three great reasons to protect your commercial deck with a quality water drainage system:
- As a business owner, your customers’ well-being is your utmost priority. Believe it or not, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that there were almost 3,000 injuries associated with deck collapses between the years 2016-2019. Make no mistake: leaks and water/moisture damage can impact the structural integrity of your commercial deck’s beams, balustrades, posts, and floorboards, railings, and more. Left unchecked, these faults could ultimately lead to breakdown and/or collapse, putting your customers at risk.
- Dampness and moisture lead to mildew, mold, and rot, which can pose a health threat to your visitors. Professionally installed drainage systems help to ward off mold, insects, and other pests, while providing a functional space beneath your desk for expanded dining and entertainment opportunities that are protected from the elements.
- By protecting the frame of your commercial deck from moisture damage, you not only prevent its deterioration, thereby enhancing its overall appearance and commercial appeal, but you extend its longevity, ensuring its use for patrons for years to come.
Your customers, clients, vendors, visitors, and residents are counting on their safety and security when they do business with you. Take steps to protect your commercial deck from water damage during its construction and implement a critical safety measure from the start.
