Hello all. My name is Chet and I’m wanting to add a roof over our existing patio. I want to build a flat roof using metal instead of shingles. I want the new roof to tie to the existing roof line at the facia board. I’m not too sure how to connect to the facia. The existing facia is a 1×6. Should I take that off and put up a 2×6 or can I just leave the 1×6? I do plan on using brackets to connect the rafters to the facia. Also, I plan on using 2×6’s for the rafters. Any hints, tips, diagrams, etc would be most appreciative. Chet
This seasonal lakehouse retreat sits on top of a bluff with a modern open plan and floor-to-ceiling windows.
