Here's how to make a canopy over the porch, and we'll talk later.
A canopy over the porch is made as needed, because this structure protects the front door from precipitation and sunlight.
Material for a canopy is not so difficult to find, but it is best to use universal options that will not change their appearance when changing the exterior of the house.
Different materials are used to make a canopy, but we will talk about polycarbonate.
Polycarbonate is capable of transmitting light, it is easily processed, unlike plastic and glass.
Due to its ribs, polycarbonate will withstand heavy loads created by snow in the winter season. Also, this material is not afraid of the influence of adverse environments.
The main advantage of the material is that they can be given a curved shape, this shape makes the canopy unusual and fits any exterior decoration of the building.
Various extensions to the house also require drawing up a plan, creating various drawings and calculations of the amount of materials.
If you are going to create a metal structure, you will need to take into account the thickness of the pipes and profiles that will be used. Indeed, the safety of operation and the durability of the structure will depend on the accuracy of the calculations.
When planning the structure, the following factors are taken into account:
To make a polycarbonate canopy, the following materials are required:
If, according to the plan, the structure is supposed with supports, then for their installation it is supposed to prepare sand, cement, crushed stone, well, the presence of the supports themselves is necessary.
These supports are made of metal pipes or steel profiles, wooden supports are not suitable for this.
In order to concrete the supports, the following tools are required:
To work, you still need:
The details of the frame are connected by welding and bolts. Large canopies are best welded on, which will make the structure more robust and reliable in use. To make the lathing, use a small profile (20 * 20 mm).
Cut polycarbonate with a circular saw or hacksaw.
When cutting polycarbonate, do not allow material vibrations, as cracks may form.
The material is produced protected with a special film, it is best not to remove this film during cutting to avoid cracking.
This will prevent deformation of the polycarbonate and simplify its installation.
In the event that materials are connected with bolts, the state of their charge should be checked periodically, because during cyclones or gusty winds, these zones can relax, this can lead to a distortion of the structure.
You can build a polycarbonate canopy over the porch with your own hands, but if you do not have the time or skills, it is best to use the services of professionals.Or if it is possible to install ready-made awnings over the porch, install.
