looking for a little advice


I am in the process of building this patio this is my first framing project I am wondering the best way to handle the corner. I wish the soffit of the old and new roof where the same height but with the beams they are not.

Re: looking for a little advice


The valley rafters must be inline with patio rafters. Now the roof ply will sit flat on the rafters meeting up with existing roof. String up the imaginary line. Now you see what you have to fill for the roof part. The valley has to be straight, but you will have sort of little wall above the facia.
The patio facia will be a step above the house facia. You need to flash the area with one piece sheet metal, overlapping the drip edge to catch the rain directly into the gutter.

Re: looking for a little advice


You will basically be doing the same thing you would do on a dormer.
this first pic is to show how the fascia will run into the roof but i would do the over build differently from what is shown.


this picture is closer to method you will most likely want to use for your over build.


this is the best example the only difference is you will just run your fascia board into the existing roof plane like in the first picture.


this is what the finished product looks like in this situation
