Let’s take a look at the different types of porch roof that you can choose from and the types of porch roofing that we can fix for you.

Gable Porch Roof

A popular roof style that works well with any architectural style. This roof typically has a wide triangle with a low ridge. The house supports the roof to the back and the front is typically supported by posts.

Shed Porch Roof

Consists of one single overhanging roof that has a flatter slope than the roof of the house. The roof sides cover the gaps between the two roofs. This roofing style works best for long and narrow porches or decks.

Flat Porch Roof

Works best with houses with a flat roof overhang. This allows for a box-shaped porch and unique extensions and is particularly popular as an extension in English suburban homes This is because flat-roofed porches can easily be closed on all sides and fitted with a front door.

Hip Porch Roof

This porch roofing has a relatively intricate shape with a pyramid shape on the front and a ridge that is perpendicular to the wall of the house.

The back of the roofing is integrated with the wall of the house, which means that the structure of the house largely supports the porch roof. This allows for easy and affordable installation of the front posts and walls.

Designs For Front Porches

The type of your porch roofing you choose should largely depend on your home’s existing structure and layout. When it comes to the design of your front porch itself, however, you have a little more freedom, since porch roofing can lend itself to more than one style of patio.

It is important to keep the existing architectural themes in mind while you choose a porch style, but make sure that you pay heed to your personal preferences, especially if you intend on spending a lot of time in this space.

The style of your front porch can make a vast difference to your home’s personality and overall appearance, so it is an excellent way to accentuate a specific style that you would like to incorporate into your home.

Let’s take a look at the different styles of fronts porches that you can choose from.

Rustic Porch

A style that is based on rugged and natural elements as well as earthy tones and textures. Gable porch roofing works the best with this style.

Veranda or Craftsman Porch

Fibre cement porch with any type of arch. Shed porch roofing is the best roof type for this type of style.

Traditional Porch

This is a style that is almost exclusively associated with flat roof types.

This type of patio is often incorporated in conventional architecture.

This is a more versatile design that allows for a number of decorative styles and features.

When deciding on the type and design of your patio and porch roof, the biggest consideration is maintaining congruency with the style and layout of the existing structure and its roof.

It is also important to keep the intended use of the space, surrounding features, and your personal preferences in mind when choosing the best style for you.
