See exactly how I made a simple porch roof. I chose a pitched roof design and in this video take you through the entire job step by step.
This has made a massive improvement to the look of the property and is a really enjoyable DIY job.
Please note that I am a DIYer and this is the first roof I have ever made. I made it 'by eye': I do not claim to be a roofer by any means and do not intend this to be a 'professional' guide!
This roof is purely decorative - the flat concrete roof below is providing the required waterproofing, hence I did not need to fit a waterproof membrane under the shingles. Because there is no membrane, airflow around the shingles is increased. This, coupled with the fact that the house is on the windy west coast of England, will ensure that the shingles and other timber will readily dry out and therefore resist rot.
I like the look of this little roof, it easily holds my weight, I am very confident it will never blow off, and hopefully I'll never have to touch it again as long as I live in the house.
