I agree, a (?) at the end of the sentence would help.

It sounds like he has a deck over either living space or a porch. What materilas he needs depends on which it is. But I'm thinking he needs some sort of low slope (or flat) roof or deck drainage option. It also sounds like it belongs in the roofing section.

There is no porch floor that will act as a roof. You install a roofing material as you would without the floor aspect, then you engineer a floor to go on top.
