Deck Waterproofing Solutions

Mostly, we install drainage systems from the largest brands on the market such as Trex and Azek/ TimberTech. Both drainage systems have the same purpose to repel water away from the deck but these systems operate in different ways, same as systems installation processes vary from each other. Drainage system like Trex RainEscape installed on deck joist before the placement of decking boards. While TimberTech DrySpace has to be installed from underneath of the deck itself with already placed decking boards on the surface.

Key difference between TREX RainEscape and TimberTech DrySpace is that with the installation of TREX RainEscape you will have to decide how to complete the ceiling underneath the deck whether finish it by installing wooden planks, panels, PVC boards or other finishing materials. If you decide to go with TimberTech DrySpace you won’t have to finish the ceiling deck underneath as it designed in a way that TimberTech DryScpace panels act as a bottom of the ceiling, but with installation of TimberTech DrySpace you may have to sacrifice the idea of adding lighting features, electrical fans and other awesome outdoor accessories as their connectors and cables will be in direct contact with water. Outdoor features can be added in this case but only if these features and lights are completely waterproof.

Is Deck Waterproofing Worth It?

Absolutely. It is especially important to waterproof your deck if you have a roof deck over a living scape area that might get damaged if the water would leak through. In reality, it is more expensive to replace a leaky roof deck as well as interior of a space and outdoor accessories underneath it, for example outdoor fans, than it is to waterproof your custom deck in the first place.

With a two-story deck, you can be as creative as possible, in a sense that you have a raised deck to create a living space area underneath it, you can add lights and fans. With a protected area, you don’t have to be scared that water might leak on your new outdoor furniture with cushions or your new outdoor kitchen accessories!

You can add waterproof TV for outdoor use, comfortable furniture with bright pillows, hammock or bed-size swing, hot tub, bar, and in doing so you instantly expanding your house area for parties and family gatherings. Make it your own outdoor paradise!

If you decide to go with outdoor kitchen under your deck living space, you can add outdoor patio table with chairs for your next family or friends visit. You can simply enjoy your dinner without worries that it might rain. Also if you add some bug screening, you don’t have to worry about mosquitos and other bugs bothering you.

What Are Other Choices when Choosing a Deck Drainage System?

Once you decided to waterproof your deck, find the right option that meets all your criteria. TREX RainEscape and TimberTech DrySpace are the best premium choices available on the market today. No doubt, both offer the best quality and value for the dollar, but these two options are definitely more on the expensive side. Other cheaper way to waterproof your deck can be achieved through installation of corrugated PVC panels with water drainage eavestrough. It works by framing and installing the panels on an angle away from the house area, therefore it keeps the under deck part dry. This is probably one of the most cost-effective ways of waterproofing your deck, but this does not protect the wood structure of the deck itself.

Always keep in mind that not all drainage systems can provide a possibility for installing outdoor features and accessories in the dry area beneath your deck in the future. Before deciding on materials and different options of drainage systems have a solid plan of how the living space underneath your deck is going to be used.
