wrought iron porch supports


I currently have wrought iron railing supporting the overhang at my house entrance. I would like to remove it if it is not supporting the overhang. How can I find out if I need to support the overhang or if it was just for decoration.

If the overhang is more them 18" or so, it supports the roof.
You can post photos to confirm.

Thanks, I might try to post photos if I can figure out how! It is definitely more than 18" so I probably have my answer. This site is great. Thanks again.
