What Houzz contributors are saying:

The photo of this energy-efficient house in Austin, Texas, shows not only the extension of the roof but also how it aligns with the patio below. The roof shades but it also helps define a large outdoor space that wraps around to a seating area adjacent to an outdoor fireplace.
Add-On Number 3: Roof Overhangs Pros: Roof overhangs are great ways to passively cool your home. When properly positioned, a deep roof overhang can shade your home from the sun, reducing energy and electricity costs.Cons: The cost of adding a roof overhang can be high, but if you are already planning changes to your home's structure or are building from scratch, it can be worth it to look into adding a deep overhang.
