Thanks for the compliment. It is very loud. That varies from a pleasant patter in a light rain, to a dull roar in a downpour. It is worth thinking about, depending how you intend to use the porch.

Do you think this design could be built on top of a carport?

Why not? A new carport could be designed for support as required. An existing carport would need strategic reinforcement, I am sure.

No problem mitering the ScreenTite to make angled corners. Only the one spot, in the very rear, did not come together well, but no one notices. Cat not included. Good luck!

Can polygal be used to create a roof over existing wood rafters?

No reason why not. Except depending on the rafter spacing, the specific Polygal product used, and the local snow load -- this particular product which is fluted, spans the long way -- up-and-down, not between rafters -- so cross-ways purlins are used. You can see them, spaced 2', while the rafters are then spaced 4'.

17-2" ' x 13'-6" outside dimensions. The longer dimension is the front face you see.

Wow. that was way more detail than I ever thought you'd give. I owe you guys. I don't mind sending you a cheque or paypal for the advice just to cover your time. Say a cheque for $100US for your time. No obligation or warranty implied. I really appreciate the advice.

We kind of figured slab on grade as opposed to posts buried. Thats being poured now (concrete truck is in the driveway). The bracing and screen system had me really mystified. Metal bracing is great idea, and looks

I'll send you some photos when we're done. Thanks.

Thanks anyway, no problem. Really. We enjoy it, and we share your excitement. If the concrete is pouring, you'd better get out there!

we are considering a similar roof on our screened porch in Atlanta, but we have a wooded lot. how do you keep it clean? i'm concerned it'll become grimy and discolored from tree debris over time. have you experienced this?

Good question! Same here, yes it does get dirty. We clean it soap (the spray-on windex that works with your garden hose) and a sponge on a 24' extendable handle, twice a year, spring and fall. The grime comes off easily. The way ours is, the grade is up behind the porch, at the low eave, so it is not hard to stand there and work the tool. You may not have that luxury. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz added this to Polycarbonate Glazing
Polycarbonate glazing is a perfect roof material, because it is half the weight of glass and virtually unbreakable.
