Veranda Roof issue adding on to veranda.

Recommended Posts

I would appreciate any help on this small remodleing of veranda addition. Attached is picture of existing. I am trying to added roof in midde. most of house is 7,3:12  pitch. But they have a  min. of 4:12 pitch. (but the roof they have in there now on paito as you see in pics is less than that!) tying to keep windows.

 

I cannot get it to work out.

Newell,

You will have a very hard time roofing that as you want.

If it were mine, I would leave the existing roof as is and use a flat, waterproof, operable roof something like this:

You get a waterproof roof that you can open on sunny days - particularly suitable in a case such as yours where the verandah is so deep that it will reduce the amount of light reaching the living room doors.

It would probably cost less than changing the existing roof.

It would also be a great feature of the verandah and add some interest.

How can the builder already give a price when firstly, you can't draw it, and secondly, you can't build it?

Probably you should ask the builder what he priced!

Hi Newell ,

 

looking at the Photos I don't think your floor plan is 100% accurate , my (rough) guess it the Curved wall radius is about 12'  as there is a straight section either side of the curve both in the existing Verandah and in the upper Window curved wall where there is also a bump out on the left of about 16"  ?

 

The easiest way is to let CA auto build the House roof without any roof over the existing verandah and then turn off Auto Build and draw your own Roof plane in from the New Verandah Wall (beam) , it looks like 2.5 deg. works if you want to keep the upper windows using your plan foot print , which would mean you'd need Flat granulated Roofing Materials not Shingles on it. playing with the Depth and or height of the new Verandah may get you back to 3 deg. the minimum for most shingles.

Mick,

 

I understood that the minimum pitch allowed was 4:12.

Although the first post wasn't very clear as I don't know who "they" are.

Hi Glenn , I didn't understand the 4:12 pitch comment either ( HOA ,City,Owner?),  but at 4:12 you would lose the Windows , so I just tried what I thought would work, doing a Cross Section through the Verandah / Windows may help too , but an accurate As-Built would be a must , and the Drawings are different from the Photos.

 

If the Windows were changed out to 12"-16" high versions to still allow light / Air flow 4 :12 will work by the look of it.... see green CAD Line below

Looks good Newell, I think you left an "S" out in perspective though

      Hey All,
      Please help me to create roof over a floor without walls but with only beam/pillars. I want it to be open terrace but covered from above.
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I have a soffit that just wants to be angled. I auto created the roofs and this happened. So I deleted that part and made my own - same thing. So I mirrored the rear roof at 45 into place - same thing. I have included the plan - anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it?

      Hello, I am trying to put together a floating deck on top of a roof patio. As soon as I draw the deck it cut a hole in the roof slab. How can I achieve to show the deck?

      can anyone explain how and help me enclose between this new gable roof and ceiling. Also looking toward house thru gable closing in with Hardi-siding. The old roof is showing thru and something else when I do a rendering (see attached). Need to look good for a client in 3 D. They are adding a roof over existing 10' x 20' patio. 
       
      thank you if you can help.
