Roofing : How to Build a Porch Roof How To Build A Natural Porch Roof
Quote from Article entitled How to Build a Porch Roof :
And porch ceilings, while often made of wood, also have a finished look. In fact, just about every aspect of a porch is more finished than its cousin, the deck. So how to build a porch roof? Before you do anything, the most important thing is planning and designing. Anyway, porch roofs, whether shed or gable-style, usually have a shallow slope. This is because they attach to the house at the top of the first floor (or maybe a bit higher on a two-story home), and because the porch eave must allow for adequate headroom. The exception, of course, is when the porch is integrated into the house design from the start, in which case there is often living space above the porch.
