How do I determine the pitch for a gable roof for my front porch?

A gable roof over your front porch can add a decorative element to your home, that increases the curb appeal. It also has a functional side to it, that allows you to use your porch in just about any kind of weather. You can also add screens to the sides of your porch, and create a semi-enclosed sitting area at the front of your house. The correct pitch of your gable roof is the same pitch as the other roof segments on your house. This allows your gable roof to be a uniform part of the look of your home, as opposed to having it look awkward.
