Under Deck Ceilings Expand Living Space
When the weather is pleasant, many homeowners would love to enjoy the outdoors more. Where better to do that then in their own backyard? One way to get more use out of the area beneath the deck is to get an under deck ceiling installed.
RainTight builds outdoor enclosures for homes so that people can increase their outdoor living space. The under deck ceiling is one of those structures. Because all decks are different sizes, RainTight custom-builds their under deck ceiling to specifically fit each and every one. RainTight also offers customers the option of either have the under deck ceiling installed by them professionally, or purchasing a kit to install it themselves.
How Under Deck Ceilings Work
An under deck ceiling can be installed on any above-ground deck. It consists of ceiling panels, support braces, trim, gutters, and downspouts. The seamless system channels the rain or melted snow that falls onto the deck away from the house. The result is that the area underneath stays dry, expanding its use for purposes it couldn’t have before. Some examples:
- outdoor kitchen
- storing lawn equipment
- hot tub
- TV viewing
- game playing
- fire pit or fireplace
Advantages of an Under Deck Ceiling
There are other advantages of having an under deck ceiling besides getting more outdoor space. Since the structure forms a seamless seal of the deck’s floor and keeps it dry underneath, it can also:
- Eliminate the breeding ground for wasps and spiders in underdeck’s rafters
- Reduce mold growth
- Make it easier to keep clean
- Increase home value
- Make the yard more appealing
