Elevated decks are popular features on Colorado homes. They give you a gathering place for your family and friends that often provides a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains. While these decks can be an awesome outdoor living space, they aren’t without their problems. The biggest issue is what they do to the space underneath the deck. Often, this space is damp and unusable for anything more than a haven for spiders and other pests. It’s not appealing, and it can waste valuable outdoor living space. Fortunately, our deck drain system can help!
Our Arvada team has installed our awesome elevated deck drainage systems on homes all over Colorado. You can see some of the before and after photos on our website. Now, instead of damp and unusable, the space under your elevated deck is a second outdoor space that can be used for a variety of things. So how will you use that space when our team is done with the deck drain system installation on your Arvada home? Here are some of our favorite ideas!
