Ever wonder what a deck drainage system is? Should you stay indoors just because it’s a rainy day? Of course not! That’s the beauty of a deck drainage system, you can enjoy the area under your deck, even on a rainy day.

How does a deck drainage system work?

Similar to having gutters on your house, a waterproof deck drainage system helps keep things dry below your deck. These systems are perfect for high decks if you want to make use of the large area below the deck as storage all while creating a dry under deck ceiling!

Wahoo Decks offers three types of waterproof deck systems.

The first type is the AridDek.  It is an aluminum decking board with an innovative waterproof tongue and groove design that creates a beautiful, low-maintenance deck surface. AridDek watertight decking boards provide the added bonus of an integrated gutter system for a dry, usable area under the deck. The safe, non-skid textured surface naturally stays cooler to the touch than traditional decking.  AridDek was designed and engineered for high traffic use in the most demanding applications.

AridDek waterproof aluminum decking creates a dry space below the deck and also provides a walking surface.

The next two types are DryJoist and DryJoistEZ.  They are structural deck drainage systems with a built-in waterproof solution. They replace traditional wooden joists while creating a 100% dry space in the area below. It’s a single system with an integrative design that eliminates add-on gutter systems, waterproofing membranes or drainage substructures.
