Deck Skirting & Wainscoting Project
Deck Skirting refers to the barrier directly below a deck. The deck could be above 10ft tall on level to the building or it could be just few feet above the ground with crawl space beneath the deck. Either way, the deck skirting intends to cover the space underneath the deck. This buildup would be very similar to installing a wainscoting.
There are multiple ways in building the deck skirting, the option here shows how to use our dassoXTR shiplap planks either vertically or horizontally as deck skirting. Build a frame beneath the deck using 2”x6” treated lumber. Ensure joist on center of not more than 36”o.c and each 6 feet shiplap planks has at least 3 joints as support. Reduce the joist spacing to 24”o.c or less for a more sturdiest structure. You would need a post at least every 6 feet interval.
The planks could be face screw or preferred, installed with soffit fastener as listed in Installation Accessories. Click on the product ITEM NUMBER to bring you to product page.
