attaching deck roof to house

Im planning to cover my deck with a light weight porch using clear corrugated plastic roofing material. This is not an enclosed porch, but one that would keep the rain off the deck and allow us to us it in the winter. In order to support the porch roof, I would like to go up about 18 inches on my existing roof and run 2 x 6 beams from the roof to the front wall of the porch. I would rather do this than attach the beams to the fascia. The fascia has a gutter attached to catch rain water anyway and I dont particularly want to interfere with that. The roof has an angle of about 30 degrees. Ive got everything figured out except this: How do I attach the beams to the roof and allow the water to run underneath to the gutters? I dont really want to remove any of the composition roof. Instead, I want to attach the beams to the roof (on top of the shingles), but am not sure of the best method.

I hope this makes sense. If not, let me know. Thanks so much.
