adding a porch to existing house

My husband and I are building a porch which connects our house to the garage. I would like some advice about conneting the porch roof to the existing vinyl siding on the house to prevent any leaking using flashing. Also how to use flashing on garage roof where the new roof connects.

Are you connecting the porch to a detached garage?
Does the garage have a footing/foundation at the same depth as the house?
When you say porch - wood - like a deck, concrete pad, totally enclosed?
Are you in a snow/freezing zone?

A picture of the area would help

connecting porch to house and garage

Yes, the garage is detached form the house. They are not the same depth. The porch is made of is only about 10' wide where the garage is 24'. We do get a little bit of snow and ice in the winter.
