A porch roof is an aspect of your home that will get a lot of attention. Not only is it an exterior structure that can be admired by guests, neighbors, and passersby, it is a way of framing and drawing focus to your front entrance. There are several creative porch roof designs that can make it worthy of all the attention. A gable porch roof is a stylish way to highlight the front door, but many porches will have a flat or slanted shingled roof supported by posts or columns.
To give your porch extra personality, finish the ceiling with colored paneling that matches your entrance door. Fixtures like pendant lights and porch swings or decorative additions such as curtains, signs, flags, and planters can also be fitted to the roof to help give life to the space.
