With the views you’d expect from a balcony but the floor space of a traditional deck, a second-story outdoor living space is both a beautiful and inviting addition to your home. The not-so-welcome addition? Rainwater. Accumulated moisture left to collect can lead to mold and mildew growth. That’s where a DrySpace™ under deck water management system* comes in.
DrySpace collects and channels moisture and storm water so you can make the most of the area below your second-story deck. With DrySpace, you double the outdoor living space and ditch the water damage.
What Is a DrySpace Under Deck Water Management System?
DrySpace collects and re-directs rainwater and other moisture to keep your deck and your home’s exterior enduringly beautiful. An attractive and expertly engineered vinyl application, DrySpace covers the otherwise-exposed joists of your second-story deck for a polished, protective finish.
DrySpace is easy to install using common tools like a miter saw, tape measurer, and shears. (For a full list of the tools needed to install your DrySpace under deck water management system, consult the DrySpace™ Installation Guide.)
Three easy-to-install interlocking components work together in your DrySpace system to redirect rainwater and can be applied to either a new deck, or retrofitted to an existing deck.
