Protect deck from rain without spoiling the views & image
January 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
The attached photos show a new built deck in QLD, Australia. Although it is big enough when heavy rain comes especially if accompanied by winds ...the rain comes through which makes it impossible to sit out. I need to cover especially the side (second photo) with something that does not spoil the views and is less invasive ( I thought of clear plastic rolls that they use in restaurants but I hate plastic and not sure how it is going to look. Any ideas /recommendations ....very much appreciated.
thanks in advance

Pull canvas curtains across when it is raining?

thanks for the effort . Will check it out though the elements are really harsh down under and not sure if canvas will not be saturated and moulded by the rain.

solita - I would say in Qld, mould would definitely be your problem and canvas would be hopeless with the wind. My first thought was the plastic though, although I hate trendy for the sake of it they are really in and do look great. They roll up out of sight when not in use and with the zip fastening you can just roll down what you need. You would probably only need them to just past your railing. Any other type of awning would block your views and block the light. Do investigate them.

Doesn't look like you were affected by Oswald? Pretty bad wasn't it.
