Open in communication with environment and full of memories that are grateful. Maybe you have thought to protect it from sun or rain or make it cozier and intimate, and you do not know how. When making an arrangement or add some special supplement, as in case of wanting to turn it into a roofed terrace we usually call a professional to take care of, but… Do we really know how to properly build a terrace deck?
Generally space destined to terrace has concrete base, which is most common and used. This base is quite good and resistant for a simplefront porch roof and can rest there. If floor is slab, do not worry, holes to reach concrete and install beams will not cause much damage if done properly and carefully. Special steel supports are embedded directly in concrete with high strength anchors to give necessary stability to structure.
If you chose a wooden front porch roof as it is quite popular nowadays, you must maintain with wood oil frequently and with special antifouling substance (or antifouling) every couple of years. Bear in mind that this space is constantly exposed to elements and must be based on resistance, duration and on your part, constant maintenance.
