putting a roof over deck

Post by Betty and Barry » Sat Sep 21, 2019 8:10 am

Hello. If I want to add a roof over my deck, do the posts have to be directly over the ones that are in the ground holding up the deck in order to hold the weight of the roof? Home is in PEI so lots of snow, etc.

Yes, it is best to keep structural components lined up, especially if you've got snow loads.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
