Need advice on mounting knitted shade tarp to roof


#1

Just joined (Diyer) looking for advice

I have a sunroom 12’ x 21’that gets to hot (south facing in Denver,CO area)

I am suspending a knitted black shade tarp (from thenaturalhome.com)over it that will rollup via a pulley rope system I constructed

Need to attached pulley system built inside a 5" pipe that is 21’ long to the roof parallel to the roof edge about 2 ’ from the edge.

My plan was to mount 21’ of pressure treated 4x4 on top of the shingles but am concerned with water pooling, causing leaks. So I thought if I router maybe 1.5" cut out on the roof side of the 4 x 4 (except where I want to bolt the 4x4 to the roof) to let water and melting snow to pass that would be sufficient… What do you all think?? Am I crazy and should consider other alternatives?

There is no place for connecting the tarp to the soffit edger board

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

First of all, are you a Donko fan? If you are I can’t help you, but I will say that you are crazy if you are thinking of drilling a bunch of holes in your shingle roof and don’t expect it to leak.

Hi,

Buy the blinds for the sun room.
