As the summer season continues to unfurl, it brings not only sunny days and warm weather but also the possibility of sudden summer storms. While these deluges can be awe-inspiring, they can also pose a threat to your deck and outdoor furniture. Summer storm preparedness is essential.

By channeling rainwater away from a deck’s main structure, an underdeck drainage system acts as a protective shield, warding off the potential damage summer storms can cause and preventing costly water damage.

Read on to learn how a water diversion system can be your deck’s best friend this summer.

Understanding the Threat of Summer Storms

Summer storms often bring heavy rainfall, strong winds, and even hail, which can wreak havoc on exposed decks and outdoor furniture. Rainwater that seeps into the deck’s structure can lead to rot, decay, and mold growth. Furthermore, excessive moisture can damage wooden furniture above and below your deck, causing warping, discoloration, or even complete deterioration. Protecting your investments requires proactive measures to mitigate the risks associated with summer storms.

The Power of Underdeck Drainage Systems

Underdeck drainage systems are a valuable solution for safeguarding your deck and outdoor furniture during summer storms. These systems are designed to capture and redirect rainwater away from your deck’s surface, preventing it from seeping into the structure. By effectively channeling water away and directing it into designated channels or downspouts, underdeck drainage systems act as a protective safeguard, keeping the surface free from pooling water and minimizing the risk of costly damage.

But wait, there’s more.

Underdeck drainage systems also offer the following benefits:

  • Promoting structural integrity: By preventing water infiltration, underdeck drainage systems preserve the structural integrity of your deck, reducing the risk of rot, decay, and associated repairs.
  • Saving your seats: Drainage systems effectively divert water away from your outdoor furniture, keeping furnishings safe from damage and extending their lifespan.
  • Doubling the use of your deck: Even during summer storms, the space below your deck remains dry and functional, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor living area without interruption all summer long.

An underdeck drainage system will ensure the longevity and beauty of your outdoor space. Contact DEK Drain today to learn more about how our TOPSIDE systems can enhance your summer storm preparedness.
