I have a house that was built in 1905. On the back of the house there is a porch that was added on in about the 20’s or 30’s. It is an enclosed porch with windows all around and finshed on the inside with bead board. My bedroom on the second floor has a door that walks out to the roof of the porch. I was planning on just painting on some of the white roof coating over the metal. The problem is how to put railings up around it. Before I can move in my insurance comp. wants the railings up or the door boarded up. I don’t want to drill or cut holes in the roof if I don’t have to. There are gutters all along the perimeter. Setting pressure treated wood directly on the metal would probably cause the metal to rust. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
