The right roof gives you the shelter you need for your porch, while the color, height and texture of your ceiling adds to the overall look and feel of the space from the inside.
Have you ever thought about adding a roof to your porch? If you have ever considered this option, ask your Dallas roofer about how you could make your favorite outdoor spot a cozy protective retreat.
Many homeowners like a classic drop ceiling with painted or stained beadboard for a traditional look. An open ceiling is another option, where the rafters that support the roof are left exposed. This is a more rustic choice, and you can use contrasting planks with the exposed rafters to add dimension and visual interest to your porch. A vaulted ceiling follows the roof pitch, with finishing materials applied to the rafters. This ceiling can make a porch feel larger, add drama to the space and keep your porch cool in hotter climates.
You want a well-built roof that will protect you from the elements, but you also need to give thought to the shape, size and style of the porch roof. Choose roofing materials that work with the slope or pitch of your porch roof.
