Will powerwashing or re-staining my deck harm the underdecking?You can power wash and re-stain your deck. Just keep in mind that if your power washer is turned up too high it may put gouges in the aluminum, or if your stain drips on the aluminum, you may have difficulty removing the stain. In most cases, we can remove paint or smears.
What about wood rot?Wood rot happens in different scenarios. We do not create any damp areas with RainTight Decks nor do we install on decks that have existing problems.
What about leaves and clogging?The only leaves that will make it into the system are those that can fit through the spacing of your deck boards. Very few leaves ever get into the system and if they do, a heavy rain will wash them through.
Are inspections or permits needed?There are no inspections or permits needed to install a RainTight Deck system.
