Adding Porch After House New Roof Replacement

This season I wanted to have a new roof installed the existing house and a new entry porch built (Portico 10 ft w x 8 ft deep) at the same time. With all the past labor and material problems it is proved difficult to get a contractor scheduled for both of these jobs.

What would be the downside if I had the porch added on after the new house roof. I am considering this because there are leaks and much needed repairs that need to be done fascias and gutters also . How should the new roof from the porch and the new roof house be tied together with the shingle and correct flashing, underlayement and IWB ?

I would add the new porch roof first. It's easy to temporarily install tar paper, rolled roofing or cheap shingles to protect the house until it all gets a new roof. Then, in the end, your entire roof will match and look nice instead of having a difference apparent around the new addition.
