A Porch roof design to keep the elements out, but let the sunlight in…

This roof is designed with what is called a “Pride“.  This means the peak extends a little bit further then the guttter line.  Being this is the highest point, it is nice to have the extra distance for protection from the elements.

All the extended surfaces in these pictures are covered with vinyl or aluminum, vinyl wrapped posts and vinyl bead board ceiling. Aluminum facia and gutters eliminate the need to paint (although everything needs cleaned once in a while to keep it looking new).

The fan adds a little color and really works on days where it seems there is no air movement (Be careful of selecting a fan. It needs to be an exterior grade).
