Protecting patio roof from water comming from house roof
 
I rebuild the attached patio and installed rolled roof.
The patio is attached to a 2 story house and the slopped roof of the house has no gutter – so in heavy rain all the water will go down to the patio roof (approx. 9 feet from house roof to patio roof).
When I demo the old patio roof I noticed that the roof was heavily damaged right where the water from top slopped house roof hit the patio roof.
Obviously the best option is to install gutter for the top slopped roof, but it will look ugly and there will be very long way to route the gutter to the ground.

Is there any alternative to protect patio roof from water that is going down from approx. 9 feet of the slopped house roof?
I was thinking about installing a sheet of galvanized metal (flashing?) right on top of patio roof to cover the exact line where the water is falling from the house roof…
Any other options or ideas?

The location is Southern California – so not too much rain, but sometimes it gets heavy for a few days.

Thanks,
Alex

You saw the water had damaged the roof and still did not install a gutter?
Rolled roofing is the lowest grade of roof you can buy and is not going to last long so it needs all the help it can get, add the gutters.

The gutters will surely help. :thumbsup:
