Why do you need a Metal Roof Canopy? ➽ Key Benefits

flat porch canopy

A distinctive feature of the ultramodern mansion is the presence of a canopy over the roof. This design is an additional sheet roof on metal supports, at a height of half a meter above the main roof of the house. Consider its advantages.

If the house is located in a hot sunny area, it becomes very hot throughout the day. If there is a flat roof without an attic, the roof warms up quickly enough, it becomes hot in the house, and climatic equipment has to be operated with increased intensity.

To minimize the incandescence of the reinforced concrete structure, flooring, roofing material, a canopy was installed over the house, creating a shadow and an air gap. It plays the role of a thermostat. The hinged structure mainly takes on heat from sunlight, and does not allow the structure to warm up under it.


Due to the fact that, unlike the traditional pitched roof, the canopy is not closed from the sides, there will always be a draft under it, especially in the open area. Wind currents cool the roof.

Under the metal roof canopy, the air circulates intensively, so the heated air mass does not accumulate here. Airing eliminates the appearance of mold and mildew in wet weather.


The canopy was built not only directly above the house, but also protruded a couple of meters from the walling around the perimeter. Due to such a visor, the rays of the scorching day sun do not shine on the walls and windows – also a positive moment to create a pleasant microclimate in the building.

The house is divided into several independent sections with a separate roof. Due to the canopy above them, a common roof is created covering the space between the buildings.

Canopy roof over the house extended over the terrace – outdoor seating area on the street is protected from sunlight and rain. Now you can spend time on the terrace in any weather at any time of the day.

Under the visor, it is possible to install lamps. This affects the aesthetics and functionality of the house – the building can be highlighted in the evening and at night. The adjacent area is also highlighted.

Thus – a metal roof canopy – an additional protective structure, relevant for buildings located in a sunny, open and hot area. When designing such an object, it is important to take into account that because of the canopy it will be impossible to make the roof operational, unless, if taken out to a height of 2-3 meters above the roof. Removing the visor around the perimeter of the house allows you to shelter recreation areas and the adjacent area from the sun and rainfall.
