Choosing the right porch roof style

At The Porch Company, every job we do is completely unique to each home and to each owner’s tastes and preference. When it comes to determining the roof style for a porch, a couple factors come into play. Two of the most significant factors include the back-of-home configuration and the roof style(s) that exist on the home. In a two-story home, the second story window configuration will often limit the roof style options. If there are many second story windows, we don’t want to obstruct those windows so we will use a roof style that accomplishes that objective. Another important factor determining what roof style for a new porch is the roof style(s) that exist on the home. The home may only have one roof line or it may likely have multiple roof lines. We will often compliment the existing roof styles of the home but not always. It’s OK to mix and match rooflines.

To see a page from one of our favorite books that illustrates the different roof lines, click here. This book entitled A Visual Dictionary of Architecture is by Francis D. K. Ching.

Here is a collection of roof pictures to illustrate roof options for your Nashville-area screened porch.

Roof Styles

The porch on the home below has a hip roof. A hip roof is our favorite. This roof style allows for overhang on all sides. It’s more sheltering than the other roof styles. With the roof sloping in multiple directions, it’s more protective and sheltering from the rain.

Hip Roof by The Porch Company

The screened porch on the home below also has a hip roof. While the home’s primary roof is a more steeply pitched hip roof, the porch roof does not need to be the same pitch. On this home, the roof pitch is the same as that of the gables on the dormers. By matching the pitch of the gables we were still consistent with the roof.

Hip Roof by The Porch Company

The detached porch below has a metal hip roof. It’s OK to mix and match roofing materials as you see here. This roof pitch and style compliments the home and allows the owners to enjoy the sound of the rain while on their open porch.

Hip Roof by The Porch Company

The open front porch below has a combination roof. The primary roof is a hip roof. Over the door in the middle is a gable portion within the hip roof. The gable portion accentuates the home’s entrance.

Gable Hip Roof by The Porch Company

This restored Nashville farmhouse has an open gable roof with Gothic arches in the gable. You can see the roofline is continued from the house seamlessly to the attached porch to make it look original to the home.

Hip Roof with Gothic Arches

The open porch on the home below has a gable roof. The gable area is the triangular area at the top. These can be open, closed, or a decorative feature can be used. Since the gable area is not structural, we did some decoration here. You’ll also notice the blue beadboard ceiling which is popular in the south.

Hip Gable Roof Decor

On the home below, the screened porch has a flat roof. You’ll notice that the other rooflines are all hip roofs. In order not to obstruct or minimize the view from the upstairs windows, we used a flat roof. An alternative roof line would have been a shed roof which would have sloped downward toward the door making the roof lower than we would have liked. By going with the flat roof, the inside of the porch has volume and the view is not obstructed from the upstairs windows.

Flat Porch Roof

The home below has multiple existing roof lines including gable and hip. In order not to obstruct the upstairs window, we went with a flat roof. This allows for a high porch ceiling without obstructing the view from upstairs. It’s important to note that a flat roof isn’t completely flat. It has a nearly imperceptible slope that allows water to drain properly so water will not pool on the roof.

Flat Porch Roof

The home below has an open front porch with a flat roof. The front porch makes a huge statement welcoming people to the front door. The flat roof allows the upstairs window view to be unobstructed.

Flat Front Roof

The porch below has a shed roof. A shed roof gently slopes downward from one side.

Shed Roof by The Porch Company

The open porch below has a combination shed/gable roof. The gable portion accentuates the entrance to the home.
