25'x25' Deck W/ Roof HELP!


I have a customer that wants an extremely out of the ordinary deck and I have a few questions.

To give you a little knowledge.
-Ranch Single Story Home
-House Roof angle 23 Deg.
-Roof over deck not attached to house but at the same direction of the slant as if it was getting attached to the back side of the house against the wall not roof.
-Open concept porch roof (No Ceiling rafters, Just cross supports/rafters)
-Fully shingled roof w/ siding on end caps of the roof.


For a 25'x25' Deck w/ Roof what is span I can get away between master support posts(6x6) w/ concrete tube footing? And will I need the posts from deck surface to cross member for extra support? See Fig A

Due to the long span of the rafters will I need the cross supports as shown in Fig B?


Answers will lead to questions... Appreciate everyones help

Where are you located? Some of those terms must be regional.

Re: 25'x25' Deck W/ Roof HELP!


Before you get bashed, they are pretty simple questions for a somewhat complicated build.

I would say you are way over your head.

And you may want to consult an engineer and architect for a design.

Its not complicated. About any dumb **** can build a pergola. Only concern is the 24' span. Illinois is where I am located.

Not ever person knows the weight to support calculation and center span.


If this was a 16'x16' I wouldn't even be on here talking to you all.

Re: 25'x25' Deck W/ Roof HELP!


Pergola does not have nearly as many factors as what im dealing with. Pergolas that distance typically get mounted to the house. The design that is on the house side is different framing from a pergola. If you do not recall **** brick that pergolas have typically a 16" overhangs which distributes the weight of the rafters more evenly
