What is DrySpace Extruded vinyl deck drainage system Space under the deck is not utilized –water leaks thru the deck boards and drips underneath the deck. This space could be used for living space or storage. DrySpace channels water away before it falls through the gaps of a deck, leaving a dry and functional space below - DrySpace solves the problem. Installs between the joists/rafters of the deck and gives a clean dry area underneath.
