If you have ever enjoyed a wonderful barbecue on your patio or deck and have experienced the frustration of needing to move everything inside suddenly because of a few drops of rain, you may benefit from a roof addition on your deck. A roof allows you to spend more time outdoors by the pool, and can give make your home feel more spacious. You will no longer have to go inside because of direct sunlight that makes sitting outdoors uncomfortable and there will no longer be any need to flee gentle rain.
Before you consider a roof for your deck, you need to make sure that the structure can support the weight of the roof. Consult a professional, like our team at Elite Roofing, who can inspect and measure the upper portion of your home and to find an appropriate weight for a roof. Having even a lighter weight roof is sufficient to make a substantial difference in avoiding inclement weather or direct sunlight.
Decide on what shape and style of roof you want. You can select a shed roof which has a single sloping surface and has a smooth design. Consider a gable roof addition which provides significant drainage of rain or snow. A hip roof slopes downward and requires a support system to keep it stable. Before you hire someone for the job, make sure that you’re aware of all the costs that can arise in the course of the project. Look at the breakdown of labor, materials and other fees. Hire workers who have been insured to avoid difficulties that might arise.
Adding a roof addition is not only practical, but enhances the beauty of your home and can increase your property value. Choose a route that is aesthetically appealing as well as useful and can complement the decor of your property. Include a screen with your roof to create an outdoor space that can be used all year round.
