There are two items that the installers are not interested in covering and I don't mind doing myself if there are some good ideas forthcoming.
1) The outside corner of the porch is a handy point for a clothes line hook as the porch fits on an inside corner with a garage to its left hand side. What are the best ways to attach a line to upvc?
2) The porch is about 3m wide x 1.3m deep. Probably the main reason that the wooden porch has rotted is that no-one thought to deal with the water run-off from the roof. It only needs to be diverted to the left onto the garage roof which in turn is designed for water to run into its gutters. Neat ideas for this bearing in mind I'm aware that we're not going to have the same rotting issue with pvc.
