The roofers treat the hip as a seam and the intersections are bent accordingly.

No, this is a sustainably harvested hardwood called Cambera. It only has a sealer on it.

Painted cedar wood. You would probably order it from your local lumberyard.

Hello,
We only dealt with that on the screen porch and this was handled with screening under the deck boards.
Hope that helps!

Hi, I use special mastic which I make by self for all my products. It makes all things long working, safe for children - as it's natural product, and save product from insects and thing can be used everywhere - inside and outside too.

I have these chairs - from Pottery barn. I just put mine outside after having them indoors for several years. I'm worried they will quickly deteriorate on our porch. They are real wicker.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to Get Inspired by Winter Greens
The exterior trim on this home blends seamlessly into the natural landscape. Mid-tone and dark greens make very suitable accent colors for rustic-style houses.More: How to Pick the Right Green
Vanessa Brunner added this to Screen Outdoor Furniture From the Sun
WickerMost modern wicker furniture is made of a very durable, synthetic material that resists sun damage much better than natural wicker does. However, it requires regular cleaning, as debris and dust can get stuck in between every little woven piece. Stick with a basic mild soap, rinse and dry to prevent long-term damage and mildew growth. The sun can seriously fade wicker, so it's a good idea to cover it if it's going to be outside for more than two to three weeks. Invest in waterproof furniture covers if you're worried about long-term care. The paint on wicker may start to peel after a while as well. Remove peels with fine sandpaper and touch up the paint.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 30 Dream Decks for Lounge Lovers
This deck overlooks Lake Fairlee in Vermont. It takes me back to happy thoughts of summer camp. I can almost hear the squawking of the bluejays and the lapping of the water on the shore. Makes me want to roll up the legs of my jeans and go wading.
