First thing you need to consider Janjan is if your deck is built solid enough to hold the weight of a roof. Most decks need extra support added if the original deck was never meant to support a roof. If you can add support posts for the roof on the outside of the deck and attach a lean to roof to your house it would be better. You will also need to check your local building codes.
You have a lean-to roof now?
