Do Decks Need Gutters?

Fairless Hills residents know deck installation is no joke; it ties up hours of your time as deck builders are working to create the perfect outdoor space for you to enjoy. Decks are especially enjoyable in the summer months, but what happens when the weather turns wetter?

Rain can quickly drive you from your investment, and the water seeping through the boards could turn the area beneath into one giant puddle. However, just because you want a deck doesn’t mean that you need to resign yourself to the whims of thunderstorms.

Here are some of the reasons you should consider installing an underdeck drainage system:

It Allows You to Keep Enjoying Yourself

There’s nothing quite like enjoying a summer evening on your deck, but when it rains, it makes it far less desirable to lounge on a deck chair.

However, if you install a gutter system under your deck, it will remain dry, making it possible to create a patio beneath your deck. Having this option means that you can still enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about the rainy forecasts that lie on the horizon.

It’s a Quick Addition

Your time is valuable, and the last thing that you want to do is tie up more of it by adding seemingly unnecessary components to your deck. However, the good news is that electing to install a drainage system under your deck won’t add much time to the project. Doing it yourself could take more than two or three hours if done correctly, while professionals could cut that time down while installing the deck itself.

It Could Help Protect Your Deck

One of the biggest reasons why you should consider installing an underdeck drainage system is that it helps keep moisture off the support beams of the deck itself. While these beams may be resistant to moisture and can be coated in sealants to protect them from the rain, the additional water could damage the main supports of the deck over time, making it necessary to either remove it entirely or pay for extensive repairs.
