This project presented several challenges right from the start. The first was tying the new roof into three other roofs that have 12/12 pitch and directing water correctly out of valleys to the gutters on both sides. Another was eliminating the step out of the house onto the new porch and still maintaining code for the step risers from the porch to patio. The newly built screened-in porch was to be as maintenance free as possible. Finally, the weather was a big factor since we had to open the roof to weather to frame the screened-in porch; it was a very rainy spring. We also had time pressure because of a hard completion date of June 26; the project began on April 27.
