Hey all you roofers/carpenters!
I'm in the planning stages of transforming a rotting porch with a small gable roof (just over front door) into a new deck spanning the front of the house. I would like the roof to cover the entire deck, and would like to know the best way to tie into the existing house roof, which has about a 4/12 pitch with asphalt shingles covering it. Should I remove house roofing up to a point high enough to get adequate pitch to the porch roof, and tie into the house rafters, or attach directly to the exterior surface of the existing house roof?
Thanks in advance.
