Think for a moment about the most beautiful outdoor deck you’ve ever seen. You are likely picturing a deck with a rich color, well maintained decking materials, and multiple areas for people to gather. You’re probably seeing cool decking accessories like built-in seating or modern deck lighting. No matter the specifics of what you’re picturing, it’s certainly a wonderful place for friends and family to gather.
What most likely didn’t come to mind during this exercise was underneath the deck. Normally relegated as a storage spot, homeowners are increasingly realizing the value of the underside of their outdoor decks and turning them into great gathering spaces using underdecking.
Take our underdecking crash course below to see how it will enhance your deck design:
What is underdecking? Maintenance free underdecking is installed under the joists of an elevated deck to create an attractive ceiling that provides shade and protecting the area below from the elements.
Is underdecking durable? Yes! Similar to our maintenance-free decking material, our deck builders only install the most durable underdecking. Our materials are resistant to freezing weather, rusting, color fading, and molding.
What about my oddly shaped deck? Underdecking is very easy to work with and can be custom fit to accommodate any shape of deck as well as any vents or pipes that may be present on the underside of a deck.
Is underdecking easy to clean? Cleaning underdecking is a snap! Simply spray down with water or easily remove the panels to clean on the ground.
An elevated outdoor deck design isn’t complete until underdecking is installed!
