red metal porch roof

Gary asked for a 3-foot roof over his porch door to help keep him dry this winter. So I made a drawing and sent him a quote. The roof in my drawing happened to be red and when he saw that he knew he had to have that colour. So I spray-painted some galvanized steel roofing with a nice, gloss regal red.

The supports are fir 2x4s ripped in half and painted white. Installation was fairly straightforward with a bit of flashing above the roof and a pocket for the vinyl siding to slide into below.

We were both really happy with how it turned out…especially the red colour. However Gary’s wife disagreed… so now I have to go back and paint it white. Too bad, little red tin roof… you can live on in this blog post.
