Aluminum frame screen patio help
I have a 27'x14'x8" concrete slab on the back on my block/stucco home. I had originally planned on going 2 or 3 high with block and then using aluminum framing up from there and adding a double insulated aluminum roof for the screen room. I've since been persuaded to ditch the block idea and use all aluminum framing with a kick plate instead. They have the framing etc. at the big Orange Box and it seems simple enough but.... With that said, here is my question:
After a lot of failed searches, I have to ask if someone would point me in the right direction to a full detailed write up or instructional video so I don't screw it up? Aside from even the basics, I am also not sure what the proper way to attach the roof to the wooden fascia would be. I live in Florida so I imagine it would have to be secured to some sort of hurricane standards etc.
Thanks in advance for your help. Btw, and as I mentioned earlier, I searched this forum as well and didn't seem to find my answer so I apologize in advance if I missed it.
