How can we deck over top a bilko door?

We need a porch roof and a deck over an existing patio. We have 12 ft of patio, bilko door, 4 ft x 6 ft dirt plot then another 12 ft patio. The bilko door leaks hence a roof! We need help!!

    You can cleat the headered opening and then have a lay over panel that lifts out. Could add casters to roll it over the deck or double doors on a hinge. Depends how often its accessed. The fact that you doing in treated lumber will help alot. The visible seams suck but that how it is.
    Good thing your moving the hot tub because a double opening side by side would be a challenge structuraly.

    Remember that when you add a roof, it greatly darkens the house's interior.
