Patio Cover


I am wanting to build a patio cover over my back porch area (disregard the current size; I plan the enlarge the floor area). I am having difficulties in the design I want. I am in search of ideas. The issues are there are two roof lines on two sides. and the highest elevated roof line descends the last 30 inches to get to a lower elevation on the side of the house. My question is: what will look best for this area. Solid cover or even a pergola would be okay as long as it looks like it belongs and is not just an addition thrown in. If that makes sense.

You may want to hire an architect for this one. They went to school for things like this.

I'd go the pergola route, but would definitely want to add some gutters to those two sections of roof. It would be hard to get any type of solid cover to look natural in that area.

Ditto.

I assume you are in Texas? Please add your location to your profile. It makes a difference.
