Deck roof to house


I am still trying to decide what roofing material to use. Right now I'm leaning towards Ondura sheets that are corrugated and come in 48 inches by 79 inches. My question is; how can I attach the new roof to the house (vinyl sided) and keep water out?

Single story house?
If so the roof should be started on top of the house roof, not anywhere near the siding.
Got a picture of the area where the roofs going?

Deck roof to house


There is vinyl siding on the house and The deck is attached to the house. I want to know what's the best way to butt the new deck roof up to the house and make it water tight. It looks as though I will have to put flashing under the siding where the house and deck roof meet. I really don't want to use flashing and detach siding from house. Any suggestions?

Flashing is the correct way otherwise, buy a case of butyl caulking and caulk the begeezus out of it, not gonna last though. ;(

if you are talking about a roof over a deck why attach it to the house? leave an inch or so between the roof and siding, not like you're gonna keep rain off the deck. slope your roof so that the water runs off (away from house) without falling on the deck.

of course you'll have to install post(s) and beam near the house to support your roof, but you don't have to worry about flashing or caulk.

good luck!

If you want to keep the water out removing the siding to install roof to wall flashing is the "only" way to do it.

Don't forget the closure strips.

Deck roof to house


Thanks all for you time and comments! I appreciate it very much. I want to do this right the first time. Is there a tool to undo the vinyl siding panels that I need to get to without undoing all of them on the back of the house? It probably sounds like I don't know what I'm doing...........but I've just never worked on vinyl siding before. I built the deck and pergola with my brother's help

Yes there is, any box store will have them and they cost less than ten bucks.

Once you get the first panel off it's real easy from there.

You may want to google Ondura and Ondiline roofing problems before you commit to that material. It's really just a sheet of pressboard impregnated with asphalt (IIRC). Doesn't stand up to punishment from things like hail or branches. It may last about as long as any caulking you use to flash it. I would go with a metal sheet product if I were you.

Still waiting for that picture.
If it's a single story home and you tried to attach the roof to the siding you would have almost no slope to the roof, low headroom over the door.
Low slope mean more chance for the roof to leak.
Trying to tie in corrugated style roof to the side of a house will be a nightmare.
