Well if you want to change the width of the roof then you have to add dimensions to the over skirt of it so that you can get a bigger porch.

Well to change the width of the roof, you can easily purchase shingles and have them installed over your roof. To install shingles, you can buy a simple do it yourself book from Home Depot which will enable you to widen the width of the roof as per your preferences.

Draw up plans, take them to the city for approval. Get a permit and visit your local home store for lumber and start. Remember the end result will be inspected.
