I have a tankless WH that has a flue that blows out the front of the unit. I want to build a metal awning about a foot above the WH to shield the WH from rain. Does this sound like a good idea?

If the tankless WH was designed to be outdoors, then, it should not matter whether you build one or not, have a go at it, if you like.

Top clearances to obstructions on an outdoor-type tankless would be 36" to meet code (not 1 foot.) Build it at least 3' from the top.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
