Cedar Open Porch with Metal Roof over Deck - Urbandale (Des Moines)

This client northwest of Des Moines had a deck that faced south and was in need of shade so they could enjoy their deck and the view of their Urbandale neighborhood. The project involved re-structuring the deck for the roof addition. We also re-worked the staircase with solid/closed risers and we replaced the railing to better integrate with the porch structure and using aluminum balusters to reduce maintenance effort on the railing.

The upper windows constrained the pitch of the roof so we used metal roofing for the porch roof and re-worked the existing sunroom roof in metal as well.
