Default Deck Shade Covering

Looking to provide sun and rain cover for all of or part of these decks. Not crazy for pullout awnings and not sure a wood pergola or roof extension attached to house would look any better. Also thought of those sale shades. Or could maybe make a 16 by 24 pavilion type shade are a down on the lawn - any other ideas? Nope ain't moving. (This is the West side and no natural tree shade until about 5 pm in summer.This dreary foggy wet muggy day seems to be the new norm here;-( And yes, those boats have not even been in the water yet.

Not sure if would work in your situation but we are going to put a couple 6x6's in the ground and a board on the house and use the Ondura asphalt roofing to build a 10x20 foot roof on one of our decks. We can get it in a red that is close to color of the shingles. Figure if we build the frame strong enough a hurricane might take the roofing off but hopefully the frame will stay. You can get a gray that isn't too far off from your shingles.

I had a Sunsetter electric awning. It was great. About 4 years ago, we took it down and put a permanent roof over our deck. Costco sells Sunsetter.

I have some more permanent ideas but would not be a cheap solution. Shade is easier than also rain. Pergolas May be the most affordable option.

one option that is I’m sure costly is adding a roof across the entire area out to the decks edge and making a nice 3 season screamed in deck. Our cape house that is new to us has one and I am out there having my coffee every AM I am here, rain or shine. Eat out here whenever we are here and not at the beach or doing whatever. It would require a new roofline / pitch where the existing roof is and fortification where the support posts would tie in. But again, cannot see it as a cheap alternative. A smaller scale version on the south portion of the area could also me a smaller scale cheaper option.

The existing roofline adds complexity. If the entire westerly wall was standard colonial a pitched less permanent solution would be pretty simple.

Not sure if this would fit or not, but my neighbor has this one, and he really likes it, it does appear to be well made.

Not sure. Probably would work as well as metal but not as strong. We are thinking about a second story deck on the water side and I was thinking what we could put over the existing deck to keep the rain out. That stuff may work and look better. From what I gather it is translucent so it would block direct sun but allow some light to come thru.

I deleted my post and answered my own question. Really needs a support surface.

One of the porches at the farm is on the SW side of the house. We went with insulated roofing panels (don't remember the brand and that file is not here). They're aluminum on both sides with about 4" of HD foam and attach together. They're strong enough to walk on.

I just put this up on my deck. Well built and a strong frame. Cover would be easy to remove in a major wind event.

Your photo shows the problem. There's no shade under the chairs?

Youryour neighbors will probably thank you if you put on a roof strong enough to not go blowing around in a hurricane. IJS
