What will it cost to build a roof over your deck?

Building a QUALITY custom roof over a deck or patio should, in most cases, be a job for a professional contractor. Building permits, city and neighborhood code restrictions, dealing with subcontractors, liability insurance, and other factors can complicate matters for most homeowners.

In most cases, you can assume a relative cost per square foot of $55-$70, based on the individual intricacies and elaborations for your roof (materials, pitch of roof, etc..).

In other words, a responsible contractor should be able to build a quality 15' x 15' CUSTOM patio or deck roof (225 square feet) for right at $13.500.00.
