During the warm summer months, pool goers and beach goers make the most of outdoor showers. At many public beaches and hotel pools an outdoor shower is provided to help keep guests comfortable and pool areas clean. While convenient for guests and visitors, outdoor showers can be a maintenance challenge if not properly constructed. Unprotected wooden walls and floors can rot very quickly in damp environments.

Decks provide a beautiful and functional addition to many homes. They can also be a critical element in protecting the home from water damage due to leaks.
