If you have a raised deck, you have space that could be put to better use. Imagine this area as an outdoor living room, complete with elaborate fireplace, outdoor furnishings or a professional-grade kitchen. You could even accessorize this spot with ceiling fans, lighting, speakers or other electronics to create an outdoor family room that provides comfort, fun and protection from the elements.
The Trex RainEscape drainage system can easily be installed on any new or existing deck. Using scissors and a staple gun, simply place a downspout at the end of each deck bay, roll out and staple the trough to the top of the joist. The water enters through the decking into the trough, drains to the downspout and then into the gutter.
The RainEscape® system fits both 12" and 16" joist spacing and is easily modified to fit 24" joist spacing.
