Featuring easy-to- install vinyl panels that can run parallel or perpendicular to the home, the system includes stainless steel hardware to provide further security and performance. Two styles of the low-maintenance panels, chamfer or beaded, come in Colonial White and Savannah Wicker color choices. Visit certainteed.com or call (800) 233-8990 for more information.
TimberTech constructs its DrySpace under-deck system from solid extruded vinyl for maximum strength, durability and weather resistance. Aiming to double the amount of livable outdoor space, the system collects and channels moisture from the spaces between boards. It easily attaches to new or existing deck joists and comes in Bone and White color options. Visit timbertech.com or call (877) 275-2935 for more information.
The Trex RainEscape Drainage System keeps rain, spills and snow melt from dripping through elevated deck boards, creating a dry area below. Featuring a network of troughs and gutters, the under-deck drainage system can be installed on a new or existing deck by removing the flooring. Once installed, utilities can be added for the under-deck area then covered with the soffit or ceiling of choice. Visit trex.com or call (800) 289-8739 for more information.
