Free Standing Hip Roof Patio Cover


Hello,

I am in the process of building a free standing hip roof out of western red cedar, but I wanted to verify my beam spans between 8x8 posts.

I can't seem to find what the span of a 4x8 western red cedar beam is. I currently have 12.5' span on the length, and 10'4" on the width. Is the length too much for the 4 x 8?

Thanks for your help.

I would go with 4 x 10s for beams as much for the look as what is needed.
Not sure if you could get away with 8"
