Lean-to roof

How far can you span a 2x6 for a metal roof for a carport. One side will be attached to an existing garage wall and the other will be setting on double 2x6's on top of 4x4 posts?

Lean-to roof

It depends on how far apart you fix the 2x6s. Obviously if they are miles apart, each will be carrying a heavy load and will not be capable of spanning far. If they are close together, they will each carry a lighter load and so could span further.
