Attaching lean to patio roof to existing roof


I'm going to attempt a project here and need your help. I have a 10'x32' cement patio and would like to put a roof on it. Would it look better to have the same pitch as the house and if so how do i accomplish this? I would like to attach to the existing roof for the entire run.

For any structural work, you need plans stamped by a licenced architect and approved by your local code officials.

As far as "What Would Look Better?" That would be a personal preferance. A flat roof would be a cheaper and easier solution to design, but the roof must be done more properly than a shingle roof and the tie-in area would be critical.

Lean it up there and attach it with 8" nails at 24" on center. Don't want it to fall down. Might need a slenge hammer to drive them in.
