HELP!! gable roofs( different sizes)

Sorry could not attach the picture, Let me know I can send it via email

the first gable roof is 3.5' away from the wall. We are building a deck (22'x22') and planning to get a [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]patio [COLOR=blue! important]cover[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] (gable roof) for 18' and attached to the small gable roof. Please advise us if a 18' cover is too long over a 22' deck. The deck is 22' so only 4' of deck is left uncovered. It is hard to visualize how the whole finished deal will look like and we obviously dont want it to look disproportionate. I guess i'm seeking your opinions based on your experience.

I have never installed one nor ever had one on my home.

Everyone I have seen/noticed while working has been over concrete patios and all came short of covering the entire ratios of the patio, so I will assume that's common for them.

I know that's not the response your looking for but I have no experience with them.
