Simple job - if there is such a thing :)


New here, a DIY looking for a bit of advice. Living in Southern Ca, no snow, and seldom rains.

In order to install a Patio Cover, I am creating a light structural addition to a small portion of my house. The support is created from 2"x10" that is 39"Deep x 12.5'Wide. It will be following the angle of my current roof which is a very low slope, but will not actually be a weather barrier to my house in any way.

I do want it weather proof, as the new Patio cover will be hanging off of it. I am looking for the simplest / non-expensive way to weather proof this slight addition.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Still trying to picture exactly what you're planning without seeing pictures.

Simple job - if there is such a thing :)


sorry, was at work earlier. Not sure a pic will help as I haven't done the actual work yet, was in the planning/buying stage. But I will attempt to explain more with the attached pic.

You'll notice that there is an enclosed room ( California room ) hanging off the back end of my house. The Ca room does not follow the roof line of my house. We are making one big patio cover (wood and Suntuf - corrugated panels). With the Ca room hanging off at a different angle, I have no support for that portion of the new Patio.

I plan to tie into the existing house roof line and fascia, and create a support so that I can install one long big patio cover. So, in essence, from looking down on the roof, it will look like a box - appx 39" x 12.5", connected to the existing roof line.

Make any more sense? If not, I plan to build the support this weekend, and it will not be subject to any bad weather here in Ca.

BTW - the roof of this "box" will just be exterior plywood.
BTW #2 - the piece of wood sitting on top of the Ca room is just sitting there to allow me to take a measurement using my laser level. That is NOT my structure

Thx

For the most part, here's my structure that I am looking to roof. It ended up being 3' x 12.5'.

Looking for the simplest and most economical way to protect this piece of structure.

Thx

Call your local single-ply roofer and tell him you want to buy a piece with whatever dimensions you have ... as well as glue. I would have sold it to you.
