Attaching a pergola to roof
I would really like to attach a flat pergola to my roof and connect it to our existing deck to provide shade. From what i've read, connecting to the roof is not the best option, but putting down posts near the house would block the already installed misting fan and light - and we would like to avoid that. If you have to attach brackets to the rafters and through the shingles, what is the best way to do this (to avoid leaks, etc.). It would need to be set in such a way that water could still flow down to the gutters which would be about a 1.5 ft. below the pergola.
